The children at various schools around Uvalde were not channeling the grinch this Christmas, as they gave numerous food items and money to the needy this holiday season.
St. Philip’s Episcopal School 3K students in Dorothy Jimenez’s class decided to donate their Christmas gift book exchange to the Uvalde Sheriff’s Department. Joy Watkins, principal, said the students, while planning for their Christmas party, talked about children who might not have a book to read. “They thought it would be a good thing to donate their books to those children instead of exchanging books among themselves,” said Watkins. “Deputy Robert Gutierrez came to St. Philip’s and talked to the students and accepted the books on behalf of the Sheriff’s Dept.”
