As we begin a new year I wanted to give you a recap of our Green Santa Program, as it was quite a success! Despite the times we are currently living in with this pandemic, our Lake Travis Community was able to rise to the occasion to help our neighbors and children in need again this year. Here are some highlights for you:
283 Families with 802 Children Served
– 576 Elementary School Kids
– 109 Middle School Kids
– 92 High School Kids
– 25 Unknown Ages
Families were given a “Family Box” that included age-appropriate toys and HEB gift cards.
And our Community was super generous this year. We raised $11,790 from great organizations like the Lake Travis Community Library and their reading challenge, the Lakeway Activity Center, and the Lakeway Police Department. Many local businesses sent in money to sponsor our Green Santa Program. We also had our local businesses and schools actually collect toys at their places of business, which is always exciting!
The Oaks of Lakeway was kind enough to once again donate some unused space for us to host our Green Santa Headquarters.
We are blessed to live in such a generous community! As we move into 2021, let us reflect on the kindness and generosity of others as we continue to support our group, LTlov, and continue to live out our motto, Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
