Shawns-2016-phone-I-040-Copy-225x300This is my first year on the Board of this remarkable Norman group, the “little engine that can” of Norman. The success of the Secret Santa drive in 2015 was as evident on the smiling faces of the volunteers and Board members as it was on the faces of the grateful families that were served. Eight-hundred and thirty children with a boatload of challenges received gifts due to the generosity of the citizens of Norman. And not random gifts or leftovers but the very gifts that the children asked for. This group is another reminder of the very special fabric of this community. This was only one of numerous rooms filled with toys, clothes and bicycles.
