Old West Christmas Light Fest is proud to announce a brand new initiative this year called, Christmas for a Cause. In collaboration with local non-profit organizations, the Light Fest team is working to ensure that this year’s festival is not only a fun time for families but also a time for everyone to help support some wonderful causes in the spirit of the holiday season. For more information, please read on to find out more about some of the organizations we’ll be working with this year. 

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Every year since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has collected shoebox gifts filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children around the world. More than 188 million children in more than 170 countries and territories have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. 


You can send joy to a child this holiday season through Operation Christmas Child. Simply pack a shoebox and bring it to a drop-off location during National Collection Week, November 15th through November 22nd. You can even pack a shoebox online.

For more than 30 years, The Boerne Community Salvation Army Angel Tree has been one of several endeavors that the Boerne Unit of the Salvation Army has provided to support families and children in need within our community.  In collaboration with Boerne ISD, our community helps Christmas wishes come true each year for an average of 800 kids in Boerne ISD.  Some gifts are purchased by local churches, civic organizations, and individuals, but others are purchased through generous donations from the community.
