Seven days before Christmas, students at Crockett Elementary School received special surprises.

Hundreds of Pioneers made their way to the cafeteria to find gifts everywhere.

Every single student received a gift today thanks to a sponsor with the Christmas Angel Tree program.

The Christmas giveaway has grown over the years, allowing every child to gift for the holidays.

“Oh it’s the best feeling in the world…these kids… it’s like having 400 of your own children. You become their mom and seeing them so happy to receive stuff it’s the best feeling in the world,” said Sybil Leal, Crocket Elementary School nurse.

This is the third year the school has participated in the Angel Tree program.
