“Each year we have approximately 50 parents register and approximately 100 children to be adopted. This year we are still accepting applications and are currently at 110 children accepted,” said Annel Zamarrón, Office of Student Life and Transition Services program coordinator.
According to Zamarrón, gifts are distributed annually by volunteers on the Sunday following the UTPA commencement ceremonies, scheduled for Dec. 14.
