Family of 3 in shelter to get a tree
to the families in time for Christmas.
Beth Walterscheidt, who owns Evergreen Farms with her husband, Mike, says of Season for Caring, “I think it’s a great program. We’re looking forward to getting the trees into the homes.”
The farm west of Elgin is open from noon to dark weekdays and Sunday and 10 a.m. to dark on Saturdays.
The families who will receive a tree include 20year-old Analicia Rodriguez and her two daughters, Anastashia, 3, and Aleina, 2. Their tree will be in their cottage at Austin Children’s Shelter. She and the shelter are working on getting her an apartment, but they need donations for deposits and rent.
Ethel Wright, a 65-yearold grandmother who is raising her four grandchildren, will have a tree in her rundown mobile home in Kyle. The home needs major repairs including floor repairs, wiring, heating and air conditioning, windows, plumbing and more. Wright needs a gently used mobile home or a builder to repair the current one.
Eddie Cousins, 38, and Jamie Yancy, 33, and their six children will have a tree in their home in Round Rock. Their home needs new flooring, some repairs and a deep cleaning.
And in a one-bedroom apartment in North Austin, Juana Rosas and her five children will have a tree this year. They want to be able to move into a bigger apartment, but they need help with donations to be able to do that.
