LA HABRA HEIGHTS...The spirit of the holidays is coming to kids who may never have received a present or heard the true meaning of Christmas before, thanks to the generosity of students at the Chino Hills campus of Heights Christian Schools (HCS), a 40-year-old private school system serving children from infancy through the eighth grade.

 The students and their families filled 289 boxes with school supplies, clothes, toys, and other items for distribution to girls and boys around the world through Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan’s Purse program where people fill shoeboxes with necessities for children in more than 160 less fortunate countries each year.

 Some students included personalized notes, photos of themselves and their addresses where they can be reached via mail.

 “We were thrilled with the spirit of our students, who put their faith into action to help those who are less fortunate,” said Randall Long, Principal. “We had a goal of 230 boxes and collected 289!”

 As a thank you, the students enjoyed a carnival to celebrate their goal that included games, popcorn, cotton candy, balloons and plenty of smiles.
