2nd Annual "Billy's Kids" a Great Success!

Location : North Houston
  • Billys Angels
  • Scott And Terri

Silverado Hospice North Houston, along with another family, adopt four children from the Salvation Army Christmas Tree.

Last year Silverado Hospice North Houston was inspired to adopt four kids through the Salvation Army Angel Tree. 

Billy Schindler, a patient, had volunteered ringing bells for the Salvation Army at Christmas for many years.  He did it because he loved to make people smile.  2014 was his last Christmas and his last to ring bells.

We, at North Houston were so inspired by him we adopted four children from the Salvation Army Christmas Tree and spread the joy!  We decided we would do this every year and call the event "Billy's Kids" in his name.

This year, Billy's family joined in the fun and adopted a child along with us.  It was a hard Christmas for them without their always smiling family leader, however, this brought smiles to thier faces--knowing he was most definitely smiling also!
