This past holiday season, Baylor Law students raised money through the Student Bar Association's Immunity Day Challenge to provide a Christmas gift to the children of Bell's Hill Elementary School. Partnering with the Valley Mills Drive location of Texas-based supermarket H-E-B, Baylor Law students donated 950 Baylor t-shirts. For the past four years, Baylor Law School has been a Waco ISD Adopt-a-School partner to Bell's Hill Elementary School and is honored to spread Christmas cheer to ever-so deserving children.
