NACOGDOCHES, TX - On December 17, two of Emeline Carpenter Elementary School classrooms received a little early Christmas from Dragon Community Partners Savannah Ricks and Candice Stott with Serve Pro in Nacogdoches.

On Thursday, Ricks and Stott arrived at Emeline Carpenter at 12 p.m. with pizza, cupcakes, winter coats and small Christmas gifts for Lori Center's kindergarten and Markia Daigs-Hammock's second grade students.

A total of 36 winter coats were donated to the students: 17 for the second graders and 19 for the kindergarteners. The students' faces lit up with joy as they slipped into their new coats.

In addition to Serve Pro's generous donation, the representatives brought with them gifts for each student. Second grade boys received footballs and second grade girls were given a small goody bag filled with nail polish, lip-gloss, pencils and stickers. Each kindergartener received crayons and coloring books. Kindergartner boys were also given hot wheels and the girls received Disney Frozen ChapStick.
