Houston, TX — Houston’s Mostyn Moreno Foundation announced that it will once again expand its Christmas Lights holiday giving program to serve special needs students at the Buna ISD and Kirbyville CISD.

The Mostyn Moreno Foundation’s Christmas Lights program organizes and funds a unique educational experience for special education students across Texas. This year, over 900 students in 13 public school districts from Galveston, Southeast Texas and East Texas will be taken on a special educational field trip where students will use math, decision-making, social skills and practice important life skills with guidance from their teachers to purchase their own holiday gifts with funds provided by the foundation. Afterwards, the foundation will then treat the students, teachers, and family members to a special lunch.
