Whataburger recently presented the Jim Wells County Juvenile Probation with a $15,000 check that would help the department with their annual Christmas drive.

Whataburger customers donated $1 to help with the fund raiser and corporate matched the money raised locally.

Thanks to Whataburger and generous donors we were able to provide Christmas cheer to many families in JWC including Alice, Orange Grove, Ben Bolt, Palito Blanco, Premont and La Gloria, according to the department.

The juvenile probation staff provided heaters, blankets, tennis shoes, jackets, clothes, laptop, bikes, backpacks, personal items, toys and food baskets to more than 25 families and over 100 children in their All I Want For Christmas Drive. Verizon donated a box of toys.
