Catalina Mtn Elks Treat Roadrunner Students to Holiday Shopping Spree
Nearly three dozen Roadrunner Elementary School students were treated to a shopping spree and holiday luncheon sponsored by the Catalina Mountain Elks Lodge #2815 on Saturday, December 8.
Catalina Mountain Elks Lodge #2815 volunteers assisted students with clothing and shoe purchases, with the Lodge donating $140 per child.
Following the shopping spree, students were treated to a very special holiday luncheon with a surprise visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus who arrived on a Golder Ranch Fire District fire truck to distribute toys and school supplies.
Joyce Garcia, event chairperson of Catalina Mountain Elks Lodge said, “This is the twelfth year our Lodge has hosted this wonderful event for Roadrunner students and it is one of our favorite times of the year. The students are so appreciative, and it is heartwarming to see what a difference the day makes for these wonderful children.”
