OKLAHOMA CITY —
All the families have been working with Sunbeam Family Services since the May storms. The sixth annual event is part of Thunder Holiday Assist.
“It’s one of my favorite things we do here,” Collison said. “With all the stuff we do in the community, its my favorite. It’s fun to see kids first hand how happy they are. It makes Christmas a lot better for these families. They’ve been through a lot this year,” Collison said. “A lot of them lost their toys, so to be able to replace some of that and make Christmas a little better means a lot.”
While the toys, clothes and games were important, getting to spend time with members of the Thunder and Thunder girls made the event special for the families and the players.
“It’s special because, I think no matter what happens in life, I don’t know if you ever plan to be in a position where spending time with other people and giving back means so much to someone else,” Derek Fisher said. “I think it’s always humbling to have these opportunities.”
