Embarking on their third year, The Children’s Shelter continues a tradition on the sprawling 10-acre campus nestled in the Westside of San Antonio to bring the spirit of the holidays in the form of Christmas trees to children and youth residing at the emergency shelter. On Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM, more than 20 local companies and organizations will bring Christmas trees and decorations in the theme of Santa’s Workshop, to provide children and youth residing at The Children’s Shelter an opportunity to drape trees in tinsel, wrap in bright lights, and adorn with ornaments. The simplicity of Christmas tree decorating may be a yearly tradition for many. For children and youth who have experienced neglect, abuse, and/or abandonment, the excitement of decorating Christmas trees creates positive and lasting memories that helps in repairing their trust, building their emotional and interpersonal skills, and creates a sense of belonging and peace. Whataburger team members will bring Santa and his elves and the Magik Theatre will provide entertainment for the kiddos on The Children’s Shelter campus. The Children’s Shelter Winter Wonderland has doubled this year with the number of community participants. The event will be held at The Children’s Shelter-2939 West Woodlawn, San Antonio, Texas 78228. For more information about The Children’s Shelter, visit ChildrenShelter.org or call 210.212.2500.
