Student at Horace Mann Gets Surprise Christmas Gift

December 19, 2018 - Osiel Escobedo is a student at Horace Mann Elementary and for the last three years he has been courageously fighting leukemia.  When two parents approached the school about helping a student during the holiday season, the staff recommended Osiel.

What Osiel wanted more than anything for Christmas was a Playstation 4.  Annette and Christopher, the Horace Mann Parents, with the help of friends and co-workers, worked hard to make this happen.  They were able to put together enough funds not only for the Playstation 4, but also a controller, a Spider-Man game, and a $20 gift card. 

Osiel was given the opportunity to open his gift one morning in the office at Horace Mann.  What an exciting surprise for a special student.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this an extra special day for Osiel, and a special thanks to Annette, Christopher and friends for all your efforts and resources to make this day possible.
