Some McAllen students received Christmas early Friday morning, thanks to Rio Grande Regional Hospital.

For over 25 years, Rio Grande Regional has adopted Navarro Elementary, with each department adopting a class and every student receiving a gift. It is a tradition that puts a smile on everyone’s faces.

In addition to the gifts, the McAllen Fire Department– along with Mr. And Mrs. Claus– make a special appearance, with a photographer to capture the holiday memories.
