Evidence of Christmas Spirit Seen Across Lubbock

The giving spirt of Christmas could be seen all over Lubbock Friday. People young and old experienced the true reason for the season. The day started with a double dose of Claus. Poncho and Santa Claus visited kids in the ECI/Debt Program. It's for kids from birth to age three who need special help. This was the program's 30th annual Christmas party. They held it this year in the McInturff Center at UMC.

Meanwhile, residents at Carillon Senior Living Center enjoyed sounds of the season. New Deal Junior High students played songs ranging from Jingle Bells to Noel. After the performance the students handed out candy to their audience.

Roscoe Wilson Elementary students traveled in style to do their good deed. A limousine took the fourth graders to the Ronald McDonald House to give bracelets to mom's who stay there. The Ronald McDonald House gives families a place to stay while their kids are in the hospital.

For the third time this week kids at Covenant Children's Hospital received a special delivery. Santa and Lubbock High School students brought fruit baskets for the kids. Earlier this week the Lubbock Cotton Kings brought the kids special hats and Thursday Roosevelt students gave the kids beanie babies.

And Downtown at the Salvation Army, more than 1,000 families received boxes with everything needed for a Christmas dinner. The Salvation Army pre-approved each family based on their economic status. You can contact the Salvation Army by calling 765-9434.
