Operation Santa Claus kicks off to help four Arizona charities

Santa Claus is coming to town and you can help him make the holiday season special for Arizona’s families. ABC15 is partnering up with Sanderson Ford and Sanderson Lincoln for the Twelfth Annual Operation Santa Claus Charity Drive to collect toys, children’s clothes, non-perishable food and monetary donations for four Arizona charities.

You can get involved by dropping off donations to ABC15, Sanderson Ford, Sanderson Lincoln, The UPS Store location nearest you or any Operation Santa Claus event from November 21 through December 19. The donations will benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix, Inc, The Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center and Military Assistance Mission.

With each accepted donation, you will also have the opportunity to be one of fifteen finalists to win your choice of a new Ford F-150 Super Crew Ecoboost or an all new 2013 LINCOLN MKZ. Each finalist will win a $100 Visa Gift Card and a key. The finalist with the key that starts the truck will win the new Ford F-150 or LINCOLN MKZ. Three finalists will be drawn live every Wednesday on ABC15′s Sonoran Living.
