Kids receive early visit from Santa Claus

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Santa came early for some children in Wichita Falls.

Students of Farris Early Childhood Center were treated to a Christmas meal and gifts from Santa Claus Thursday at Carinos.

These children come from low-income families so the holiday season can be tough on their parents financially.

Lisa Little with the Head Start Program said this is where the staff at Carinos steps in.

"Without this event, the children might not have the opportunity to get Christmas presents or even visit Santa Claus," Little said.

The kids were given gifts and stockings filled with goodies.

The partnership between Head Start and the restaurant has been going on for the last seven years.
