U-Haul is pleased to help brighten Christmas for thousands of children across the Valley through Operation Santa Claus and its partnership with Sanderson Ford.
Russ Baldwin, U-Haul Company of Western Arizona president, on Nov. 17 presented Sanderson Ford with a check for $10,000 to assist with the project, which benefits kids throughout the Greater Phoenix community through numerous charities.
“U-Haul, headquartered right here in the Valley, has been moving families to a better life for 75 years,” Baldwin said. “We’re proud to once again partner with Sanderson Ford and ABC15 to help make Christmas better for countless children around the Valley.”
