CDCR’s Northern Transportation Hub
The Statewide Transportation Unit-Northern Transportation Hub (NTH) was overflowing with holiday spirit as its 42 staff members partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Tracy (BGCT) to provide a special afternoon for more than 50 children during their Gift of Giving event.
Thanks to the efforts of all involved, the children were treated to an afternoon of food, festivities, fun and gifts.
NTH arranged a surprise visit from Santa (Officer S. Gunderson) and his helpful Elf (Officer R. Navarro) which quickly became one of the highlights of the afternoon.
Each NTH staff member was given a child’s name, age, size and wish list for Christmas. To the surprise and delight of the BGCT staff, NTH went over and above their expectations to ensure that each child would have a great Christmas.
