  2. “Zapatos for Zavala”/ Shoes for Zavala 2022

    FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2022
    9:15AM TO 11:30AM
    SHOE CARNIVAL
    4717 SPID, CC TX

    “Zapatos for Zavala”…..and this is what Christmas is all about! Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who came to help us shop for approximately 75 children from Zavala Elementary. We were so excited about making these children happy and we know they were, however the real “winners” were the volunteers. What a wonderful experience, the children put a smile on our face AND IN OUR HEART!!

    The children absolutely loved the fact that they were able to pick any pair of shoes they wanted and not worry about price or style. Nike, Converse, and Vans were some of the more popular choices, however, unicorns, sparkle, and light up shoes were highly prized, especially among the younger students.

    Thank you CITGO, their magnificent team of volunteers and for their monetary donation, we would not have been able to do it without them. CITGO has always been a great supporter of the WBA and our community – we truly appreciate everything they do!

  3. Navidad de los Ninos

    Thank you to everyone that made Navidad de los Ninos a HUGE success! We could not have done it without the help of our wonderful and generous sponsors which include VALERO, The Port of Corpus Christi, CITGO, Corpus Christi Medical Center, HEB, Christus Spohn, and Pinnacle Roofing Company. These companies truly are the backbone of making this event successful and we cannot thank them enough for everything they do for WBA and the westside community as a whole!! A great big thank you to all our WONDERFUL volunteers who gave up their Saturday to help us make the children’s Christmas event a success. We also have to thank Esmer Teran with the Antonio E Garcia Center, Viva Mexico Ballet Folklorico, Leslie Valadadez, Girl Scout Troop 96026, Weinerschnitzel, Rhino Equipment Services, Betty Jean Longoria aka Mrs Claus, the Medical Society Medical Alliance for donating all the bicycle helmets, and the 30 + vendors booths that made sure the children had plenty of activities and fun on the grounds of the Garcia Center. A special thanks to the Ice Rays players and mascot, HEB Buddy, and the Hooks – Rusty Hook, and the Islanders athletes who all together absolutely “wowed” the kids with their presence.

    The children were treated with a framed picture with Santa & Mrs. Claus , toys, cookies, hot dogs, and over 100 children went home with bicycles and a helmet, scooters, basketballs, soccer balls, etc etc.

    The Westside Business and it’s board of directors are so happy and proud to have brought this 39th Annual Navidad de los Ninos to our community.
