Amarillo, Texas - Yet another sign our community is extremely generous - more than 8,000 under-privileged children across our area will now have a merrier Christmas, because Saturday was Eveline Rivers Christmas Project delivery day.
Over 500 volunteers came out to bring gifts to needy children in the Amarillo and Canyon areas, children who without these gifts, may not have anything to open on Christmas.
Eveline Rivers says, "We started last January, making sure we had everything we needed. And then in November we began boxing and wrapping those. Our objective is to make a child smile. And that's what we're doing today."
The Christmas Project has been making less fortunate children smile since 1979.
All the kids who are getting presents were referred to Eveline rivers throughout the year, by people like school counselors and teachers.
