HOUSTON - There's nothing like getting into the holiday spirit with some Christmas carols, especially when one of the carolers is a World Series champion!
George Springer was in downtown Houston on Tuesday, spreading holiday cheer.
The World Series Most Valuable Player, along with Megabus, teamed up to support Houstonians impacted by Hurricane Harvey who are currently staying at The Residences on Emancipation.
The 295-bed housing community is run by the non-profit New Hope Housing and is located in downtown Houston serving those displaced by the hurricane.
Also there to make sure the event hits all the right notes, the Houston Children's Chorus joined Springer to sing holiday carols for the folks at the community.
Of course, people couldn't be happier to meet Springer.
"It's wonderful. It's the first World Series and the first time this place has been opened in a long time, you know, for people who are displaced or homeless," Earl Wyrick said.
"It's a very exciting day. And it's something to lift the spirits. Just look at the trees and the doors, you can see that the residents have decorated. We're all decked out and ready for a lovely afternoon," Joy Horak-Brown, the president and CEO of New Hope Housing, said.
Organizers said to date, Coach USA and its subsidiary, 'megabus.com' have donated more than $30,000 in support of Hurricane Harvey relief -- including the holiday caroling event.
