Friends of an Arkansas woman are asking the community to send her Christmas cards in the wake of her boyfriend's death, KOKI reported.

Arkansas police officer Stephen Carr was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Fayetteville Police Department on Dec. 7, according to officials.

Friends of Carr's girlfriend, Madi Rader, set up a post office box and asked people to send her Christmas cards to lift her spirits, KFSM reported.

"Madi loves Christmas (like more so than anyone I've ever known) and I really think this would be an amazing way for you all to bring her some joy this holiday season," Shelby Finch wrote in a post on Facebook.

Anyone interested in sending a card can address it to: Madi Rader, P.O. Box 568, Fayetteville, AR 72701.
