The annual Christmas drive that helps brighten the holiday season for children in Texas County began Monday.
“Share Your Christmas” involves numerous organizations, businesses and individuals joining to help less fortunate families and their kids. The program’s headquarters is in the basement of the Houston Lions Club building on North U.S. 63. Hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Applications are taken there.
Cases will be outlined in the Houston Herald, which launched the drive 31 years ago to help people in the county who need assistance during the Christmas season. Volunteer Pat Miller is the coordinator. For information, call her at 217-1318 or Angie Quinlan at 217-6595.
An “Angel Tree” will be set up in the entryway at the Houston Walmart Supercenter on South Sam Houston Blvd., and the needs of various children will be listed on angels hanging on the tree. Participants can pick up a list and Share Your Christmas will distribute the donated items.
