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.
