Navidad de los NiƱos

Antonio E. Garcia Arts & Education Center

navidad de lo ninos

Join us December 7, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Garcia Center.

Navidad de los Niños, a favorite annual celebration at the Garcia Center, features food, toys, games, and photos with Santa. The event benefits more than 1,200 disadvantaged children and families annually. Everything is completely free, and all children leave with a goodie bag. There are opportunities to win prizes throughout the event also, including dozens of bicycles with helmets and other toys donated by the community. Photos from the 2012 Navidad


Support Navidad de los Niños!

To donate: donate in advance by coming by the Center or mailing a check (payable to the Westside Business Association) to: Antonio E. Garcia Arts & Education Center, 2021 Agnes Street, Corpus Christi, TX 78405. A $35 donation purchases a bicycle for a needy child, but any amount is welcome.

To volunteer: We need help both the evening before the event and morning of the event with setup. We also need help during the festival with handing out goodie bags, staffing fun booths, giving out prizes and food, and helping children and families with the activities. Please fill out this volunteer form to let us know your availability.
