LUBBOCK COUNTY, Texas -

Santa and Mrs. Claus let the reindeer rest and hopped on an AeroCare chopper to visit boys and girls at The Texas Boys Ranch Saturday, landing right in the middle of the campus.

The Christmas celebration included a parade led by the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office. A car club and motorcycle club also took part.

 

Santa informed all kids living at the Ranch and its shelter they will each receive a $50 gift card to pick out the presents they would like. Several workers, volunteers and Ranch supporters joined in lunch.

The Coyote Store in Gail presented the Ranch with a $5,000 check. Most of the funds were raised by donating $1 from each concert ticket sold there over the past year.

The Texas Boys Ranch, just northeast of Lubbock, provides foster and adoption care services for boys and girls who are victims of abuse and neglect. Learn more about the agency at https://www.texasboysranch.org/
