Students from Round Rock, McNeil and Stoney Point High Schools will host a Christmas party and provide gifts to approximately 150 elementary students on December 5, 2018.

The elementary students have been identified with some type of challenge in their lives that could impact their holiday celebrations.

This year the number of elementary students identified for the project has increased from prior years and the schools could use community support.

The high school students are taking up donations and toys for these elementary students. There is also a wish list.

If you would like to donate to this event, please contact:
