Winter Celebration 2013
Winter Celebration, hosted by Living Through Giving and Welcome Home Community Newspaper, will be held on Saturday December 14, 2013 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The event will be held at Legacy Shopping Center at 1803 East Sonterra Boulevard, and will bring the community together for food, fellowship, and most importantly, to contribute toys to benefit children throughout San Antonio. The event is free and open to all ages.
In 2012, Winter Celebration collected 85 percent of the toys for the “Toys for Tots” program, collecting over 7,000 toys for local children. “Toys for Tots” is a nationwide organization headed by the United States Marine Corps that is aimed to change the lives of local children by keeping their spirits intact.
Thousands of families across the city will be joining this special event. Winter Celebration will feature AirLIFE Santa and performances from local bands, spirit groups, choirs and much more. Businesses will also have booths set up where they will offer everything from delicious food and drinks to face painting, giveaways and other fun activities for families. This is a great opportunity to connect with the community, give back to those in need and to celebrate the holidays. This year, Living Through Giving has made the goal to raise enough toys so that no child goes without one.
Living Through Giving is a new non-profit organization that is aimed to provide support and services to benefit the children of San Antonio who need it the most. As an organization that blossomed through Welcome Home, a local newspaper that focuses on the children, families and members of the community, the sole purpose is to make a difference and change lives.
