Recognizing the need that many members of the community face during the holidays, Board Member Rojas provided toys to children chosen by District 6 schools. The families enjoyed a breakfast door prizes, and pictures with Santa Claus.

“This event allowed us to bring smiles to the faces of needy children from District 6 schools.

This was truly a community effort and I thank everyone that made this possible,” Ms. Mari Tere Rojas said.
