Students at Rancho Santa Fe’s Horizon Prep participate in Operation Christmas Child, helping 587 children around the world receive a Christmas present this year. “This is a schoolwide service project that is a Christmas tradition for many of our families,” said Horizon Prep Interim Vice Principal Holly Morey. “Our students love to pack their shoeboxes with toys and toiletries. Many of them include a personal note and picture.” Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Since 1993, shoeboxes have been given to approximately 8 million underprivileged children a year in over 130 countries.
