Arkansas-side seniors residents age 65 and older can pick up coronavirus packages at City Hall beginning today at 11 a.m. 

In response to empty shelves and lack of household needs such as toilet paper, paper towel, lysol and wipes, Texarkana, Arkansas is providing the relief "to alleviate the fear of not being able to acquire items from the stores as people are rushing to buy them," according to a statement.

A fundraiser will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at City Hall, 216 Walnut St. Those  making donations to the care package effort will receive a free hotdog lunch.
