“They told me it was going to be a warm season,” Santa said upon arrival.
With no snow in sight, instead of a sleigh, Santa appeared in a Rolls Royce. The toy soon after.
The ninth annual She’s Happy Foundation toy giveaway surprised the kids at Cuney Homes with over 60 bikes and $10,000 worth of toys.
Warren Broadnax, the foundation’s chief executive officer and a former Houston firefighter, said it’s important to bless those who bless. She is happy with her hair and its seven locations.
“When you come from humble beginnings like us, that’s very important,” said Broadnax. “We’ve been in these situations before. We’ve needed things for Christmas. Our community is our patron.”
Among the dwarfs giving gifts at the community basketball court was former Rockets star Steve Francis.
“It feels like coming home and being rewarded,” Francis said.
It also hit the home for a three-time All-Star. Earlier this week, Pope Francis shared about his struggles with mental health and alcohol in a piece titled “Letter to Black Youth” published in The Players ‘Tribune.
“All it takes is to reach one person who can reach another,” Francis said. “I just want them to see me physically and see that it’s real.”
“I don’t think they know the slam dunk champion we have here, and are a staple in the Houston community,” Broadnax said of Francis’ involvement. “So the fact that Steve Francis can come out here and help, it’s bigger than life.”
A successful local star and a successful local business, each taking pride in doing good to the neighborhood, it is certain that the children of Houston will feel the Christmas spirit when the weather makes them happy. I feel a different kind of warmth.
