During the month of December, the OneBeacon Government Risks (OBGR) San Antonio office held a drive to support 11 ‘angels’ for the San Antonio Children’s Shelter. The OBGR Christmas tree was adorned with the ‘angels’ that contained a child’s name, age, sizes and interests. The response to this drive was overwhelming. In addition to gifts for the ‘angels,’ we collected personal care items such as body wash, shampoo, deodorant and much more. We were delighted to deliver a Jeep full of gifts and supplies to our shelter in the hopes of giving the little ones some holiday care and cheer.
