All the families from the Family Hope Center who attended the drive-thru party completed Faith & Finance, a class where families are equipped toward financial empowerment through learning financial skills, such as creating a budget and saving money. Photo provided by the Texas Rangers.

Oliver's mission this holiday seas was to assist families, like the 10 Family Hope Center families, who have completed financial education courses by offering a helping hand as they break the poverty cycle and provide a better life for their children. Photo provided by the Texas Rangers.

Each family received a $50 gift card for each child, a $100 gift card for the parents, a barbecue dinner from Dickey's Barbecue Pit, outfits from Precious Petals for children 5 and under and gift bags for each family member containing winter caps, scarves, gloves and toiletries. Photo provided by the Texas Rangers.
