Curtis Jenkins said he saved money from his paychecks this year in order to buy presents for the students on his daily route.

His initial idea was to host a gift exchange, but when his wife pointed out that some of the kids' families might not all be able to afford gifts, Jenkins decided to buy each of them what they asked Santa for instead.

Jenkins handed out all 70 gifts on the day before Christmas break. The gifts included electronics, puzzles, and even a new bike.


"When I opened that door, one of the kids asked me, 'Are you Santa?'" Jenkins told KXAS. "Seeing those faces on the kids was more than anything I could ever do with the money."

Jenkins said his work is his calling and he hoped to show each child they have value and are loved.

"I'm not at a job, I'm on a mission from God," said Jenkins. "I don't say anything about religion to the kids. I just let them know whatever they love is fine with me, just love somebody on the way."
