ACC Breakfast with Santa

ACC Breakfast with Santa

When asked if he was looking forward to seeing Santa Claus, Jeremiah Gonzalez couldn’t come up with an answer except for a wide grin that spread across his face.

His mother, Vanessa Valdez, of Rosharon laughed.

“That smile says it all,” she said.

Valdez and her children joined hundreds of local families who received a free breakfast, food, toys and a visit with the St. Nick during Breakfast with Santa on December 2. The event is the culmination of the Alvin ISD and ACC Food and Toy Drive.

“The kids are really excited,” said Telsa Fisher, of Alvin. “This is a very nice event.”

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

The event was made possible through Alvin Community College, Alvin ISD and volunteers from the community and other civic organizations. Approximately 1,200 people were treated to a pancake breakfast and approximately 450 families were nominated to receive donated food and toys.

The event has been held for the past 29 years in conjunction with the Alvin ISD and ACC Food and Toy Drive. It was started by members of the ACC Church of Christ Student Fellowship.
The toy donations were collected through the Toys for Tots program.

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.
