Rep. Tomas Uresti's District Office
It seems that every year the holidays begin earlier and earlier, to the point where we often hear Christmas music before Thanksgiving. While we are all preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving, Senator Santa has begun his preparations for another swing through Senate District 19.
This year Senator Carlos Uresti, Representative Tomas Uresti, and the Bexar County Tax Assessor Collector Albert Uresti are hosting an opportunity to bring together community leaders and the incredibly generous constituents of SD19 and HD 118 to host a large toy drive in San Antonio. With the toys collected the Senator and staff will dress up in costume to carry out the duties of “Senator Santa” and distribute toys to less fortunate children across West Texas.
Since 1997, thanks to the gracious contributions made at the toy drive, the Senator has been able to collect and distribute more than 14,000 toys for children in need across the district. During these visits I also have the pleasure to visit area nursing homes to deliver calendars and coffee mugs full of candy, and plenty of good cheer.
Unfortunately, the Senator does not have a workshop to produce the toys and relies on the generosity of the Texans who Christmas Party and Toy Drive to bring an unwrapped gift for children up to age 8.
I'm expecting up to 600 guests for this annual event, which will be held Friday, December 8th, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at VFW Post 9186, 650 VFW Blvd., San Antonio, TX 78214.
Santa will be on hand for pictures and I hope you, your friends, neighbors, and co-workers will come enjoy the music, door prizes, and a full dinner. This community event also serves as an opportunity to discuss important issues before the legislature.
Be sure to wear something festive and bring unwrapped toys appropriate for infants or children through age 8. We are always in need of gifts for kids in the 1 to 8 age range. The gifts we collect will be distributed by "Senator Santa" to hospitals and child care facilities across the district 17 counties that are larger than 12 States and 82 countries.
The holiday season is the most special time of the year, and it can be even more special if you'll help me make sure that a child in need won't go without a gift this year.
