During her trip to Texas Rachel visited the Heart House to bring books to the children that benefit from the program. The Heart House Dallas is a free after school educational program that provides a safe haven and academic support to at-risk children, while encouraging them to become good citizens.
After her visit to the Heart House, Rachel delivered Christmas gifts to the Toys for Tots drive in Dallas. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. Fox4 News in Dallas featured Rachel’s appearance at the event on Wednesday night.
