It was five years ago when Santa arrived in Yorktown to surprise Lindsay Green and her two daughters, Kaydense and Madie, with a houseful of furniture, toys, and clothes.
Green's husband, Sgt. Gabe Green, was a Texas Army National Guardsman. He was killed in action by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in mid-October 2009.
Santa Claus (Buddy Kamin of Kamin Furniture) returned to Yorktown once again to offer some “Christmas magic”, last week.
Sirens blared as a caravan made its way to the home of Amy Naranjo Campos to deliver an early Christmas package or packages.
Mary Romans, a resident of Yorktown and a nurse with the Yorktown Independent School District, submitted a letter nominating Campos for Kamin Furniture's annual furniture giveaway. She said, “It was a good opportunity to help someone.”
Campos said, “I was in shock. I was overwhelmed.”
