Christmas came early to the Oyster Creek Police Department this year.   On December 7th, representatives from ABCs Public Relations Committee delivered a trailer full of toys for families in need in Oyster Creek.   The committee is comprised of ABC member companies who place value on giving back to the communities where they live and work.   After learning that Police Chief Tim Bradberry had purchased toys out of his own pocket last year, the committee decided to step in and lend a hand providing hundreds of toys to families in need.   This is one way that ABC member companies work for the betterment of the communities they live in!   Chief Bradberry sent a letter of thanks (below):

 It’s hard to believe it is Christmas time again. There is nothing like a little snow to get people in the Christmas spirit. It has me thinking back to when I was a kid. There is nothing to this day that compares to the excitement of Christmas as a child. Drinking hot cocoa, listening to old Christmas songs and baking cookies to put out for Santa with a cold glass of milk and a note.

Trying to stay awake all night to listen for the sounds of bells and reindeer hoofs on the rooftop, hoping to catch of glimpse of Santa placing presents under our tree.

Then waking in the morning and rushing into the living room to find your presents and trying to wake Mom and Dad so we could start opening them.

These are all great memories for me. My kids have been fortunate enough to share the same types of memories. Sadly, there are families in our area that are not so fortunate; however thanks to Associated Builders & Contractors of Texas Gulf Coast Inc. families in our community will have a good Christmas with many happy memories.

ABC Texas Gulf Coast donated hundreds of toys for needy families and the Oyster Creek Police Department is making sure that they get to the children that need them. I have reached out to my officers and we have comprised a list of families in the Oyster Creek community that need help.

We had a family that recently lost their home in a fire.

Another whose father has been in the hospital for the last three months, and many others who have lost their jobs and simply can’t afford to get their children anything.

In the past we have never had a program to get toys to needy children we simply relied on other agencies. On behalf of the Oyster Creek Police Department I would like to say thank you to Associated Builders & Contractors of Texas Gulf Coast Inc. for everything you have done to make this a good Christmas for many families as well as allowing us the joy of participating in this program.
