Rancho Santa Fe school Horizon Prep donates gifts to children around the world

Horizon Prep students with gift boxes for underprivileged children around the world.

Thanks to Horizon Prep’s participation in Operation Christmas Child, 587 children around the world will be getting a Christmas present this year!  “This is a schoolwide service project that is a Christmas tradition for many of our families,” says Horizon Prep Interim Vice Principal Holly Morey. “Our students love to pack their shoeboxes with toys and toiletries.  Many of them include a personal note and picture.”

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, www.samaritanspurse.org.  Since 1993, shoeboxes have been given to approximately 8 million underprivileged children a year in over 130 countries.

Horizon Prep currently serves 440 students preschool through eighth grade and was selected “Best of” Private School 2009 and “Best of” Preschool 2009 & 2010 by the readers of Ranch & Coast Magazine.  Horizon Prep Preschool is celebrating 10 years of early education in North County.
