The Corpus Christi Chapter of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA) donated approximately $6,200 worth of toys as part of the Counting on Santa toy drive to benefit children assisted by the Catholic Charities.
Members of the Corpus Christi Chapter of TSCPA had been collecting new, unwrapped toys since early November and presented over 40 boxes of the toys to Catholic Charities on December 10.
"We conduct our "Counting on Santa" drive because sharing the Christmas spirit means giving so that the children can experience the magic of Christmas. This helps spread Christmas cheer for them to know they are not forgotten, that someone cares and that they are loved.
Catholic Charities will distribute the toys to nearly 7,000 underprivileged children in the community, who are “Counting on Santa.”
"So many of us have been blessed in so many ways and it is only right to give back to the community and especially the children at this time of year. We can truly enjoy our Christmas because we know that children that were "Counting on Santa" have indeed had a Christmas wish come true."
