EL PASO, TEXAS - Foster children and their families enjoyed a little holiday cheer Saturday.
The Department of Family and Protective Services hosted a holiday party for children under the care of Child Protective Services. The party was held at the Fountains at Farah and children enjoyed photos with Santa, ice-skating and food.
"Our kids go through unfortunately abuse and neglect and it's a day for them to be kids. A day for them to celebrate Christmas, a day for them to enjoy time together and hopefully to have fun," Diana Lopez, permanency Director for CPS said.
