Together We Made the Most Joyous Time of the Year One to Remember
Robstown, TX (December 21, 2017) – On Monday, December 18th the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds, Spectra Management staff, came together to make the most joyous time of the year one to remember for the children at the Women's Shelter of South Texas. Donations collected by the community from November 15th – December 17th were delivered to the Women’s Shelter of South Texas in an effort to make the children who are staying at the shelter with their mother’s a brighter one this time of year. Providing holiday toys for children can be a struggle for families especially those have been victims of domestic violence. Together we were able to collect donations for the children at the Women’s Shelter of South Texas for ages ranging from 0-17 years old.
We would like to give special thanks to our community, the staff at the Nueces County Community Services/Inland Parks, and the SAXET Gun Show for helping us collect donations.
With the help of everyone’s involvement, we were able to make a difference this holiday season for children who have endured hardship. Thank you to all who contributed, we appreciate your support, and can’t wait to see what we together can do next in 2018.
