“Our children were so thrilled to meet Santa and to welcome our community partners,” said Principal Adriana Ruiz.
“This is proof positive that we have amazing organizations who help us bring joy and education to the children of our community.”
All 300 students at Hawkins Elementary School on Tuesday received a gift and a hug from jolly Santa Claus thanks to a partnership between good ol’ Santa and several community-minded civic and professional organizations from throughout El Paso.
Joining Santa in helping to provide gifts to the students at Hawkins were the El Paso Women’s Lions Club, the American Legion Post 36 and the U.S. Marines 19 Rifle Unit.
