As the Christmas grows closer, it always generates that spark and theme that it is “better to give than to receive” in the hearts of those who have such deep compassion and love for their fellow man. During this festive season, some fall short of the financial resources to provide for their family as they would like to do.
“In so many cases, children may go without Christmas gifts of any kind were it not for the generosity of these caring individuals and groups who step up and make Christmas have the true meaning of what it is meant to represent,” said Capt. Ken DeFoor in a media release.
So it was with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office when through the generous donation of toys, clothing and other essentials, they joined forces with Bluebonnet News and other local individuals to address the needs of one particular family in Liberty County.
“Although the LCSO has no budget to address such needs, Reserve Deputy William Hall, his wife and son donated many needed items to this family on behalf of the LCSO,” DeFoor wrote.
As a result of partnering with others, this family with two small children will now have a memorable Christmas dinner, clothing and toys that otherwise would only have been a Christmas wish and not a reality.
“This is only one of so many other families across our respective areas who may need assistance not only at Christmas but all during the year. However, the Christmas season is a very special time in a child’s life that will linger in their memory for many years to come. If this one single gesture has a positive impact on these two children, perhaps they will, in years to come, remember it truly is the season of ‘peace on earth, good will toward men,’” DeFoor said.
