Christmas Toy Giveaway

Just before Christmas the Fort Bliss Water Services had come by to drop off donated toys. One of the employees dressed up as Santa Claus and handed out toys to the military kids. The event was taking place in the ASYMCA Hotel lobby. A military family had recently moved to El Paso and was staying at the hotel. The mother happened to come down with her children for breakfast; toys were given to her children. With tears in her eyes she thanked the ASYMCA staff as she watched the smiles of her children. They had used most of their savings in the move, they had not received reimbursement from the military yet and were short of money for Christmas presents. She thought her children were not going to be able to celebrate Christmas. The children were able to sit with Santa Claus and open their presents by the hotel lobby Christmas tree.
