Santa Claus is coming to Town
We live in Grimes County Texas , one of the poorest counties in Texas ( no Business's ) All year long our community has Turkey Shoots , bake sales, different events to raise money for Christmas for 12 families.
Saturday afternoon they had their rally the community , the final beg ,borrow or steal to help out . We raised over 9000.00 . Now at the end of the meeting 2 young couples came in . Everyone knew them , kids who had went to A&M and left our community for financially greener pastures..
One of the couples wrote a check , and then the second did . Both 5000.00 or 10,000 between the two . It must have been planned because these two couples came together . It was quite emotional as the two couples both went to our only HS together really good kids . We have one family that had a house fire in August that have been living in a loaner travel trailer with their two grandchildren. Our firemen and others have restored their home and they will be moving back in next Saturday. Twelve families will receive a Turkey Meal , Toys for the kids and items that people on the group feel they need . Some will be getting cleaning supplies repairs to their home etc. Anyone in Grimes county December 8th cmon out to Yankees and join the parade through the woods . It will be a toy run like no other motorcycles, cars minivans . Starts at 9:00 AM Santa and the community friends.
