The Beeville Toys for Tots program, in partnership with the Vineyard Christmas Angels, would like to thank everyone in the community who purchased and donated toys, books and stocking stuffers, purchased TFT train cutouts, volunteered at the Vineyard’s Santa’s Workshop to assist families in selecting and wrapping toys for their children and participated in the “fun run” organized by Total Graphics which provided funds for book purchases.
The efforts of many individuals, schools, 4-H groups, Boy Scouts, businesses, civic organizations and two Marines from Corpus Christi made this year’s program a huge success, providing Christmas gifts for more than 1,100 needy children in the county.
Special thanks to longtime volunteer Ellene Valenta and to her assistant, Lucy García, for organizing the volunteers for the toy distribution at Santa’s Workshop.
It is a pleasure to have the support of such a generous community and the nationwide Marine Toys for Tots Foundation for a program which provides hope and happiness for many less fortunate children.
