On a cold Christmas Eve, We met a mother and her 4 young children, "The C Family." Their school counselor contacted us on the very last day before holiday break with a desperate plea for help with their case. It had been a hard year for them- an unfortunate life change left these children homeless, their mom a single mother with no job and certainly no hope of gifts from Santa.
Because you stepped in to bless this family, their Christmas was merry. The children received new clothing, jackets and blankets to keep them warm, new shoes to last through the school year and so much more. Though they celebrated Christmas from their van in a parking lot, their little faces were glowing. Their giggles and the joy on their faces were immeasurable. You provided the gift of hope and love.
This year, the C family will celebrate Christmas from the warmth of their home. The hope and self confidence that you provided helped pave the way to a new life for them.
Thousands of children right here in our community are waiting on their Christmas miracle, just like Family C's. Last year, the generosity of our donors blessed more than 2,100 children with the gift of Christmas.
Thanks to you, the heroic 'Santas' of west Texas, we're able to begin preparations for another busy holiday season as we anticipate serving more than 2,500 underprivileged children in our local schools.
