There is simply no better way to start the holidays than to see our kids celebrating with food, fun and of course – toys! More than 300 Little Brothers and Sisters came to this year’s Holiday Party. Bigs and Littles had a great time making holiday crafts — and each child received a gift thanks to our toy drive participants and sponsors.
Huge thanks to our friends at Padgett Stratemann and RBFCU for making this event possible, and to our toy drive participants: Alpha Phi Alpha, Dell, For the City Network, Gamma Alpha Omega, Gerson Lehrman, KForce, Inc., O’Connell Robertson, South Austin Rotary, and URS Corporation.
The Holiday Party has been a standing tradition for more than 20 years, and we’re looking forward to several more decades of creating winter magic for our Littles. If you’d like to host a toy drive or get involved with next year’s event, we’re always welcoming new friends and partners. Just email our events manager, Kate Garrett, at KGarrett@bigmentoring.org and she’ll give you the details.
