I have an urgent request on behalf of the McAllen Rainbow Room and the RGV Rainbow Community Partners Board.
|Every year the Child Protective Services caseworkers provide Christmas presents to the children on their case load. This year, not nearly enough toys were obtained to fill this need.
McAllen CPS houses 10 units of 6-8 CPS caseworkers. Each caseworker has at least 60 kids they are responsible for. So we have well over 4,000 children currently in the system that will NOT get a gift. This year only 10 gifts per unit were received.
We are asking you, your office or your businesses to preform one act of kindness in honor of every person who was killed in Newtown by donating a gift for a boy or a girl. Please drop your donations off at the McAllen CPS offices located at 1919 Austin St in McAllen.
|The RainbowRGV Community Partners Board
is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization . It is operated by volunteers whose mission is to form a partnership between Child Protective Services and the community. Rainbow RGV Community Partners believes that through these joint efforts a caseworker is better able to protect and assist families and children in crisis.
If you would like to make a online donation please use the donate button.
