(January 10, 2013) Park Place Motorcars Fort Worth donated more than a dozen bicycles to the Cowboy Santas program, helping children 12 years old and younger receive gifts during the holidays. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Mae Gray-Rossi, executive director of Cowboy Santas, recently accepted the bicycles.
For more than 30 years, volunteers along with City of Fort Worth employees have gathered, sorted and helped distribute toys throughout Tarrant County, including the cities of Fort Worth, Arlington, Bedford, Mansfield, Hurst, North Richland Hills, Forest Hill, etc. More than 12,000 kids are served through the program every year.
Cowboy Santas is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization headquartered and housed in the City of Fort Worth Parks and Community Services Department. The program began in 1981 at several Fort Worth Community Centers with a group of community leaders helping to provide area families with toys for the holidays. More info at cowboysantas.org.
