Nathaniel Hernandez, a junior at Odessa High started a Christmas Caroling group last year. It was a group of about 12 students, including his younger brother Noah that rehearsed after school several times, bought Christmas presents and went to Odessa Regional Medical Center and Medical Center Hospital Pediatric Units to perform and hand out the gifts. Nathaniel decided to do it again this year and the group has grown to about 30-35 students. He collected over $200 from the students and purchased presents to pass out that included toys, coloring books for the children and body care and goodies for the elderly. They performed at Harmony Home, the MCH pediatric unit, Parks Retirement and other locations.
