Tito Resendez celebrated the holiday season by giving away 500 turkeys to several hundred Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District Operations staff at his State Farm office on Friday, December 19.
Football players and cheerleaders were on hand to distribute turkeys and cheer on drivers.
His contribution totaled approximately $10,000. As an active member of Heroes for Harlingen CISD, Resendez volunteers his time to provide students and their families with services to enhance their lives.
The Heroes for Harlingen program is designed to increase community engagement in education through community campus visits, discussions with administration and building partnerships.
Components of the Heroes for Harlingen program includes Ambassadors for learning, a program that allows community partners to hold discussions with administrators at HCISD, and Caring for Kids, which aims to identify the needs of students through community partnerships and Classroom Connections, which pairs local business leaders with teachers to share their real world experiences and classroom strategies.
