Rancho Santa Fe school Horizon Prep donates gifts to 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.”
