Hundreds of students from Russell Elementary School received holiday gifts from a group of secret Santa’s. The large donation of toys was made by several area business executives who joined forces to bring holiday cheer to underprivileged children.
The toys were donated by Gary Nguyen, CEO of 24/7 Care at Home; Sonny Nguyen, CEO of 7 Leaves Café; Tam Nguyen, CEO of Advance Beauty College; David Truong, CEO of Mimi's Jewelry; and Jayce Yenson, CEO of Saigon City Marketplace. The group donated toys to several area non-profit organizations as well as to Russell Elementary School.
