U-Haul Support of Operation Santa Claus to Benefit Valley Kids

Nov 18, 2020

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.”

Headquartered in Midtown Phoenix since 1967, U-Haul enriches Valley communities by partnering with local nonprofits such as St. Mary’s Food Bank, St. Vincent de Paul and many others that align with our primary community objective of helping people meet their most basic human needs. U-Haul also partners with a number of national charities like the American Red Cross and Humble Design, which assist those in need by utilizing U-Haul Company’s immense resources, infrastructure and philanthropic spirit across the U.S. and Canada.
