COLDSPRING — The San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office, along with Crawfish4Kids and the Church on the Lake, combined to provide Christmas spirit to 20 needy families in the county.

The Rev. Charlie Beard of Church on the Lake on 190 in Livingston, a long-time Coldspring resident, reached out to the Sheriff’s Office because he and his fellow churchgoers, along with Crawfish4Kids, wanted to do something nice this holiday season for several underprivileged families in the county, Sheriff Greg Capers said.

The “elves” came together and collected toys, bicycles and pre-packaged Christmas meals, enough for 20 families in need, and with the help of Sheriff’s deputies, boxed up the food and toys and set off in a reindeer-sleigh style procession to deliver these items to families across the county.

“The smile on the faces of the families when they saw what Charlie and his fellow church-people had gathered for them warmed my heart,” Capers said. “Being able to deliver these gifts and make Christmas brighter for these families is a huge blessing and reminder of just how amazing this community is. I’m honored to have an impact on Christmas for these families.”

Capers thanked Beard and his congregation, the people of Crawfish4Kids, and the deputies who helped make all of this possible.

“It is a true Christmas blessing,” he said. “I know times are hard, and to see a glimmer of hope and joy in the eyes of our wonderful residents serves as another reminder of how much of an honor it is to serve as the Sheriff of San Jacinto County.”
