For the sixth consecutive year, CBS 11 and TXA 21 are partnering with the Cowboy Santas program to help bring joy to children who might not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas. The Cowboy Santas need YOUR help to provide toys, games and books to children ages 12 and under from low-income Tarrant County families. This year, our partners at the North Texas Business Alliance are making it easier for you to donate new, unwrapped toys and books at any of their locations.
Beginning Friday, November 29 and continuing through Tuesday, December 17, you can also drop off new and unwrapped toys or books at either the Texas Rangers Grand Slam Gift Shop at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Rangers Fort Worth Team Shop at 316 Main Street, or the Rangers Dallas Team Shop at 2222 McKinney Avenue, Suite 140 during regular store hours. Items may also be dropped off at all Fort Worth Police and Fire Departments and at the Cowboy Santas Warehouse Warehouse, 541 North Main Street in Fort Worth.
Big thanks to all who came out to the Sundance Square Plaza toy drive on December 12! Thanks to you, and to our partners at the NTBA, more than 4,000 toys were collected for kids in need!
On Tuesday, December 17 from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., the Rangers will sponsor a Cowboy Santas Toy Drive event at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington in the center field Vandergriff Plaza area. Current and former Rangers players will be on hand to sign autographs during this event. Holiday movies will be shown on the video screen, the Rangers KidsZone will be open, and drink and food specials will be provided by Sportservice. Other activities will include face painting, balloon artists, and a photo booth with a special appearance by Santa Claus. Donations of new and unwrapped toys and books for boys and girls, newborn to age 12, will be greatly encouraged.
Fans attending the December 17 event may park in Lot B and enter Rangers Ballpark in Arlington through the Majestic Grand Slam Gift Shop.
Cowboy Santas is administered in partnership with the Fort Worth Parks and Community Services Department’s Community Action Partners Program, which certifies households for services. The program spends 98 percent of all financial contributions on gifts, toys and books. Donations are tax deductible.
