PISD Staff Donates to Operation Santa Claus
The Christmas spirit is in the air and Palacios ISD staff are doing their part by providing a generous donation collected over the last 6 weeks to the Palacios Area Fund's Operation Santa Claus project. Since 1985, Palacios Area Fund has been hosting Operation Santa Claus, a non-profit food and gift outreach program that reaches more than 100 households and 300 individuals throughout the Palacios, Blessing, and Bay City communities. This community effort provides full holiday meals to families and many senior citizens who are in need during the holidays. In addition to the holiday meals, Operation Santa Claus provides wrapped Christmas gifts to community children distributed by volunteers from around the area. Superintendent Dr. Bill Chapman and Admin. Assistant, Ashley Garcia, present PISD staff donations to Sally Kurtz, Palacios Area Fund representative, and Santa Claus.
