A Tucson business owner is continuing her tradition of giving back to local kids.

Great Waves Salon owner Rufina Monteverde held a fundraiser to buy gifts for all the students at Drexel Elementary School.

Santa helped pass out gifts to hundreds of students this afternoon.

This is the fourth year of this fundraiser and Monteverde says she enjoys seeing the students smile.

She says she would like to turn this into a community-wide event so she could buy enough toys for all the schools in Tucson.
