More than 150 kids with craniofacial deformities were showered with gifts at the Craniofacial Foundation of Arizona’s annual holiday party, which took place at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.

The gifts were donated to CFA by Sun Health employees and residents through the organization’s SHINE (Sun Health Involvement Never Ends) committee, which had a November toy drive to gather the presents.

Sun Health employees wrapped almost 100 of the gifts for the kids and donated dozens more unwrapped toys to CFA.

Lori Takeuchi, program coordinator for CFA, said she was deeply touched by the generosity.

“The gifts were over the top and the families were so happy,” Takeuchi said. “One boy gasped and as his mom said ‘came out of skin’ when he opened his gift.”

Several Sun Health employees attended the party and helped the children with craft activities and visiting with Santa Claus. The Phoenix Fire Department also provided assistance during the party.

Should they stay or should they go?

Arizona lawmakers are advancing a bill allowing business owners to ask people to leave if they have service animals that are out of control or are not housebroken. The proposal originally would have made it a Class 2 misdemeanor for a second violation of lying about having a service animal. Should lying about having a service animal be a crime in Arizona?
