WHAT: Christmas Shopping Spree
WHO: Tejas Members benefiting Guadalupe Community Center
DATE: Saturday, December 2, 2006
TIME: begins at 9:00am - be there a little before
WHERE: At the Wal-Mart located at 1515 N Loop 1604 E San Antonio, TX 78232-1431. Best described as the northwest corner of Highway 281 north and Loop 1604 westbound access road. Phone number 210-491-0291 (Get directions)
DETAILS: We need one member for each child - we have enough pledges for 19 children at the moment. We will meet the children at 9:00am at the Walmart. One member will team up with one child and go shopping. The children will have lists of gift ideas and family members. Around 11:00am we will finish checking out and go to a room set up for the kids to wrap the presents. Walmart is donating a Santa outfit for our use and Santa will be there for the kids to visit with.
LUNCH: We should finish this up around 12 -12:30, at which time the children will return to the center and the Tejas members will go to a restaurant for lunch. Location is TBD.
WHY: To share the spirit of Christmas and the gift of giving
with those families who otherswise would not have a Christmas.
NOTE: In order for this event to be successful, we need
members to be there and we need the funds to make it work. Anyone
willing to donate wrapping material would be greatly appreciated.
