ACC Breakfast with Santa

ACC Breakfast with Santa

As her children ate up a pancake breakfast, Franchesca Edgley said they were in a bit of a hurry.

“My kids are excited and they want wait to see Santa,” she said as her three children smiled.

The Edgely family joined hundreds of local families who received a free breakfast, food, toys and a visit with the St. Nick during the Breakfast with Santa on December 1. The event is the culmination of the 30th Annual Alvin ISD and ACC Food and Toy Drive.

“It’s a very festive event and it’s a blessing for families,” Edgley said.

Food and toys collected during the drive were distributed at two locations — the ACC campus in Alvin and Manvel.

The event was made possible through Alvin Community College, Alvin ISD and volunteers from the community and other civic organizations. Approximately 370 families were nominated to receive donated food and toys.

This was the 30th anniversary of the Food and Toy Drive which was originally started by members of the ACC Church of Christ Student Fellowship.

All Alvin ISD campuses participated in the food drive. Several tons of nonperishable food were donated to the food drive from the Alvin ISD schools and ACC.

There were dozens of volunteers at ACC including students and staff, Alvin ISD students, local Cub scouts, Boy scouts, teachers and more. Alvin ISD employees and ACC’s Culinary Arts students cooked the pancake breakfast.

“We enjoy doing this so much,” said Vicky Vasquez, a volunteer who works for Alvin Elementary. “This is our way of giving back to the community.”

“I just love the smiling faces,” said Debbie Elkins, who volunteered alongside Vasquez.
