Mr. Bud Box and Arvelene Amari collected gifts for a Blue Santa program at their annual "Christmas at the Camphouse" gathering. They then wanted to have a school administrator recommend a program to accept the gifts.
As Arvelene volunteers with the SAPD Blue Bear Mascot program and Bud was a long time Alternative Education Administrator, it made sense to ask Mike Duffek, Principal of the Nixon-Smiley CISD Alternative Campus for his recommendation as he was also a former SAPD officer. He chose the Smiley Marshall's program to receive the gifts.
Bud and Arvelene would like to thank all the folks who gave gifts and would like to thank Marshall Soto and his staff for sponsoring the program. They would also like to thank Mike Duffek for his part in making this happen!
If you would like to be a part of this effort, please contact Mike Duffek at 830-582-1536.
