Abrazo Children bring joy to community this holiday season

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A group of very special children shared the magic of Christmas over the weekend with families from both sides of the border.

The 2019 WBCA Abrazo Children along with the International Good Neighbor Council, Laredo Chapter kicked off its Saturday by preparing goodie bags for mothers delivering babies in Nuevo Laredo.

Items for the goodie bags including blankets, bottles, shampoos, wipes and diapers were collected by students from several local elementary schools.

After the bags were prepared, the Abrazo Kids then treated a small group of children from Bethany House to an afternoon viewing of the Grinch.

Their hope is to bring a little joy to children this season.
