Cave Creek residents share Christmas cheer

Staff Report~ 12/10/2014

CAVE CREEK – Local residents helped prepare gift-filled boxes that will be distributed around the world through Operation Christmas Child.

This year, Phoenix and Cave Creek residents collected more than 26,000 gift-filled shoeboxes now on their way to children in need around the world. These boxes will contribute to the global collection goal of 10 million in 2014. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to more than 113 million children in over 150 countries and territories.

Local residents can still participate. At samaritanspurse.org, gift-givers can pack a shoebox gift online and send it off to kids in countries around the globe.
