Angel of Hope, formerly called Navidad en el Barrio has started fundraising for this year's Christmas. The organization gives presents every year to 3500 children who are most in need from both LISD and UISD. Constable Rudy Rodriguez said he looks forward to helping the Laredo community every year. "We give each child five gifts. Some of them compete against each other and they receive bicycles, lap top computers. They get gift cards from HEB, Wal-Mart and also we feed them with Chic-Fil-A." This will be the ninth year for the charity.
