Today, The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) hosted the 7th annual “Dando Gracias” and “Champions for Education” for the schools of Juarez Lincoln Elementary and Kennedy Zapata Elementary. Every year the Laredo Highway Patrol makes a raffle to raise money to purchase over 100 turkeys and trophies with all the fixings included. The trophies are awarded to one boy and girl based on best academics from each classroom for every grade level (Pre-K – 5th Grade), and for the family a turkey with all the fixings included. DPS does this every to give back to our community and to congratulate our future leaders.
