2019 Holiday Program for Needy Families
Del Mar Lodge 1350 will host its Annual Holiday Party for Needy Families on Wednesday, December 18, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the Lodge Building located at 1305 Woodlawn Dr., Corpus Christi, TX 78412-4022. Three family in need identified by the Principals of Blance Moore Elementary School, Meadowbrook Elementary School and Woodlawn Elementary School will receive their presents from Santa and Mrs. Claus.
On Thursday, December 11th the families Shopped with A Mason at the Walmart Super Center on Saratoga Blvd. Walmart has in the past several donated towards the purchases. We appreciate Walmart's continuing commitment to supporting this program each year and hope they will continue the tradition. Each family was given a budget. The kids get to buy Christmas gifts for their parents and the parents get to spend on their children. Masons and Ladies from Del Mar Lodge 1350 along with staff from the two-school assisted with the shopping. The presents were brought back to Del Mar Lodge where the Ladies and Masons will wrap them in preparation for the Christmas Party. Before leaving, Subway provided three large sandwich trays to feed the families and helpers. We appreciate Subway Development STX for their generosity in the past and hope they will continue to support the program by providing lunch for the children, school officials, Masons and their ladies.
On Wednesday, December 11, Lodge members and their ladies will be shopping at HEB Plus on Saratoga for holiday dinner items. Through the generosity of HEB Community Programs in the past, we have been given a substantial grant from HEB to purchase two complete holiday meals for each of the families. There will be a turkey, ham, all the sides, dessert and other food items so that these families will have both a complete Christmas and New Year Holiday Meal. BIG shout-out to HEB.
On the following Wednesday, December 18, there will be a holiday party at Del Mar Lodge 1350. Jersey Mike's Subs has provided sandwich trays in the past, and we are hoping they will continue their serving holiday cheer at this year's party. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive to present the presents during the party.
This program is made possible by donations from members of the Lodge, Masons from other organizations, individuals and businesses. See our business sponsors in the sidebar. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please contact Del Mar Lodge at firstname.lastname@example.org .
