Featured Donors: Tracey and Allante Thomas 
Tracey Thomas loves Christmas. She also loves children.
 
So every other year, Tracey throws a party to celebrate the season and collect toys for children in need.
 
“I want everybody to have a nice Christmas,” said Tracey. “It’s the season of giving. That’s what the Christmas spirit is all about.”
 
Last December, Tracey and her daughter Allante, an oncology infusion nurse at MD Anderson at Cooper, collected toys for the Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper.
 
“We wanted to help children in our own backyard,” said Allante. “The party is an awesome way for our friends and family to participate in giving back to the community.”
