Tarrant County domestic violence shelter receives thousands of donations following viral letter

More and more packages keep streaming into a North Texas domestic violence shelter after a young boy's heart-wrenching letter to Santa.

Safe Haven of Tarrant County shared a video of the thousands of donations people have made in the weeks following the boy’s letter.

Part of the 7-year-old’s letter read: “Dear Santa, we had to leave our house. Dad was mad. I'm still nervous.  Are you going to come this Christmas?"

The boy asked Santa for books, a dictionary, compass and watch, and a “very, very good dad.”

SafeHaven says the donations made the boy's Christmas last week.
