More than 400 Crespo Elementary School students got an early start to the holiday season on Dec. 3 thanks to BBVA Compass Foundation’s Project Blue Elf initiative, which distributes toys to children in low- and moderate-income communities.

BBVA Compass brand ambassador James Harden and basketball legend Robert Horry helped the foundation surprise the students in kindergarten through second grade with toys. The foundation also led the students in a financial literacy activity focused on the importance of saving money.

The toy distribution at Crespo serves as the kick-off for the third year of the Project Blue Elf initiative, which is expected to reach nearly 5,000 students across the Houston-area.
