2018 Celebration of Giving, Wednesday, December 5th

The Celebration of Giving event, hosted by Assistance League of Houston members each December, is the highlight of the year as much for our volunteers as the children and families we serve. This year we sewed and stuffed 160+ stockings with hand held games, markers, books, socks, toothbrushes, gift cards, and much more, to give to patients and their siblings at Texas Children’s Hospital.  Received donations allowed us to assist 42 families with $400 gift cards and the filled stockings.

A Special Thank You to our Corporate Donors!

Celebration of Giving, an Inspirational Success!

We truly have a MAGICAL Santa.  Bob Warnsman, a PALs Member, played Santa and brought joy to all, from children, parents, social workers to members.  The children were excited as they heard him come in jingling the Christmas bells.  Bob/Santa patiently sat and listened to every wish and took every picture even though he was in a very warm Santa suit and had no breaks.  His Santa duties did not end when he left the building, because as he was walking back to his vehicle, he was stopped by many to take a picture or speak to a child which he did with grace.  However, he went above and beyond when he encountered a child being unloaded from an ambulance.  He greeted the child and even rode all the way up with the child to the treatment room in the hospital.  I believe we would have all wanted to see the smile on that child’s face.   Thank you Bob/Santa for all the MAGIC you gave us during this event.
