Kidd Springs Central is collecting Christmas gifts for an Oak Cliff family of seven whose lives were uprooted by a drive-by shooting that almost killed the mother last year. Yamile Rocha-Calles was a former nurse and athlete until she was struck in the chest by a random bullet in her home on Falls Drive in September 2014. She lived, but the family had to leave their home, and they were saddled with medical bills. Email kiddsprings.central@gmail.com to let them know what you would like to donate, and drop the gifts at CocoAndré, on Seventh at Adams. Here is their fundraising page, and here is the Christmas list:
