Here’s a shoutout to Jeff and Denise Ratcliff who presented the “Haunt for Hunger” in Bentonville this year. The two decorated their house for Halloween and asked folks to bring canned goods to contribute to the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank. Well, earlier this week, they delivered 250 pounds of pantry items as well as $250 to the food bank. Plus, they say they hope to do it again next year!
