EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The El Paso Chihuahuas are teaming up with AT&T this holiday season to help the Child Crisis Center of El Paso and its mission.
The Paws for Presents is an online donation drive that is active now and runs through Friday, Dec. 8.
The Chihuahuas are asking fans to make a minimum donation of $5 at https://elpasochihuahuas.regfox.com/2023-paws-for-presents or by CLICKING HERE. With a minimum donation of $5, donors will be entered to win a Chihuahuas grand prize. The larger the donation a patron contributes, the more entries the respective donor will receive.
The Chihuahuas grand prize includes the following:

As part of the Paws for Presents, the Child Crisis Center is asking for new and/or unopened items of winter clothing for children ages 6 months to 5 years of age. The first 75 in-person donors will receive an exclusive El Paso Chihuahuas gift while supplies last. Donors who deliver in person gifts will not be eligible for the online raffle. You can drop donations off at the Child Crisis Center of El Paso located at 2100 N. Stevens St. in El Paso, Texas.
Launched in 2015, Chihuahuas Paws for Presents started as a new and unwrapped toy drive with distribution centers around the El Paso region. It has since evolved into a monetary drive to ensure each child receives a new toy and each gift provided coincides with the child’s respective age. Since 2021, the drive resulted in more than 1,000 toys and gifts purchased for the Child Crisis Center in time for the holiday season.
The Child Crisis Center was opened in 1980 and serves to “protect children from abuse and neglect by providing shelter, advocacy and family support services,” according to the organization’s website.
Toys and items purchased from the donations will be distributed to the Child Crisis Center beginning the week of Dec. 11. Days and times will be announced at a later time.
