Thank you Arizona!
The holidays are nearly upon us, and Arizonans are showing their generosity by breaking our Operation Santa records!
During Wednesday's Claus-a-Thon, Operation Santa sponsors and Valley residents came together to support needy Arizona families and helped us to raise $126,135!
ABC15 hosted a day-long phone bank, along with special broadcasts at drop-off locations around the Valley all to support our major Claus-a-Thon efforts.
The donations received during Operation Santa will go to help St. Mary's Food Bank, Military Assistance Mission, Phoenix Children's Hospital, and Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center.
While our phone bank has ended, you can still donate any unwrapped toy, children's clothing item, packaged food or monetary donation at the ABC15 studios, any of the Sanderson dealerships or The UPS Store location nearest you through December 20th.
You can also donate online .
