GRAPEVINE, Texas — The Dallas/Fort Worth Limousine and Motorcoach Association (DFWLMA) recently assisted WFAA’s Santa’s Helpers, an organization that collects toys for children throughout the four-county Dallas/Fort Worth area.

For 50 years, companies, agencies, and individuals have given generously to this massive undertaking that serves more than 50,000 children each year.

Santa’s Helpers collected toy donations at several points around the city. On Dec. 4, DFWLMA gathered at Ferrari’s Italian Villa to fill 16 vehicles provided by DFWLMA members with toys they had collected and donated. The vehicles made their way to the drop-off location, the gym at Colleyville High School, where cheerleaders unloaded the cars. The caravan packed with toys, complete with an escort from the Grapevine Police Department, was an inspiring sight.

"A wave of emotion fell over me while I was watching the Grapevine police-escorted caravan of DFWLMA members’ vehicles make its way down the road and into the school parking lot. Knowing how full each vehicle was with toys for children in need absolutely warmed my heart," said DFWLMA executive director Christina Davis.

DFWLMA is nearing the end of a great inaugural year, and the board and members of the association wanted to give back in a meaningful way. In addition to donating the vehicles and drivers, they also donated to Santa’s Helpers.

"Thank you for your kind and incredibly generous donation to this year’s Santa’s Helpers campaign. DFWLMA blew us away. All the limos and motorcoaches were so cool," said Stephanie Wilcox of WFAA.

Participating in this great cause wrapped up DFWLMA’s first year. The association is looking forward to an even better 2020 and more opportunities to give back to the community.
