In lieu of a traditional holiday party this year, the staff of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, Paso del Norte Health Foundation and Fundación Paso del Norte elected to give back to the community by hosting a holiday celebration for the children, families and staff of the Center Against Sexual and Family Violence (CASFV or Center).
The Foundation staff provided holiday crafts, music and a warm meal to the residents and staff of the Center. Santa Claus made a special appearance, delighting the more than 40 children in attendance. The Foundation staff dressed as elves and helped Santa distribute gifts that were provided by the staff to all the kids.
“Our staff did a great job organizing this event,” said Tracy J. Yellen, CEO of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. “It was fun and creative and a great reminder of what it means to be in service to others.”
