Children at the Union Community Health Center’s Behavioral Health Program were treated to a Christmas party and toys by Raymond and Annie Acosta on Thursday, December 15.

The Acostas lost their 26-year-old son Jonathan Acosta to suicide in 2014 after a battle with mental illness.

Annie believes her son was someone who would have given the shirt off his back for those in need, so the Acostas treated the underserved children in the behavioral health program to Christmas presents.
