EDINBURG, Texas - It only took one teacher with vision to help students during the holidays and make them smile before the winter break.
The Secret Santa Society was created to provide children with a Christmas gift. For more than seven years the number of children in Hidalgo County receiving a gift from an anonymous source has grown tremendously.
Juan Nevarez, Seguin Elementary Principle said, “We’re thankful for the Secret Santa Society for helping us out. When we have kids and when you can always make there day a little better and they’re Christmas even more magical. That's something we love to do because were in the business for kids. We’re here to help and educate all the kids and it's a great opportunity for us to experience here with them.”
The Secret Santa Society is not only around during the holidays. They also help students with school uniforms, school supplies, and even book donations.
