Pancho Claus is celebrating 41 years of putting smiles on children's faces. Last year, we distributed over 17,000 gifts in the Houston area, and expanded our gift-giving to the children of the Rio Grande Valley Area.
“The Rio Grande Valley (RGV) is home to over 900 'colonias,' which are unincorporated, impoverished settlements along the US-Mexico border. These settlements lack basic services, such as running water, electricity, and paved roads. (A. Gatta)”
The Pancho Claus Season includes performances, parades, personal appearances, gift-giving, etc.
Any funds raised past our Christmas Goal will be used year-round for further Pancho Claus programming.
Thank You & God Bless,
