CCRTA collaborated with Catholic Charities for a Holiday Toy Drive
Catholic Charities has celebrated over 50 years of providing food and toys during the holiday season to people throughout the community no matter what their denomination may be. The CCRTA partnered with Catholic Charities and sponsored the 10-14 year old boys and girls by providing gifts. RTA employees opened up their hearts to fill a need for children of the Coastal Bend.
Saturday, December 9, was distribution day and the church was filled with over 175 people. As each child stepped up to pick out their gifts the look of excitement was written all over their faces.
“Our prayers were answered when we received your call,” said Celia Mendez, “the children all went home with ear to ear smiles with their gifts held tightly against their chest.”
The CCRTA would like to thank all who participated in the Catholic Charities Toy Drive this year and wishes everyone a joyous Holiday Season.
