Girl Up Houston was able to take part in Fort Bend County Women's Center's annual Santa Store by volunteering on one of the two days of the event. FBWC's clients, domestically abused women, were able to "shop" the store for holiday gifts for their children and themselves, and we assisted them by restocking the store and helping them pick out gifts by leading them individually around the store to designated age gifts for their children. Watching the women meticulously pick out gifts for their children, definitely brought out how much they cared for their kids and only wished to bring the joy during the holiday season and at all times. It was such a privilege and joy to be able to give back for the holidays especially for these women who have been through so much, too much. In the two day event, FBWC served over 1,200 clients as well as their children, and this was definitely an experience to remember, interacting with the women, hearing stories about their children, and simply helping this season of giving. FBWC received hundreds of new gifts for these women and their families, and it was amazing to be able to see first hand a community that came together.
