Canyon Cares Christmas Bigger, Better Than Ever

December 12, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

A GCU holiday tradition became more expansive than ever Sunday afternoon with the move of Canyon Cares Christmas to the Quad and Arena. The University’s three campuses collected toys for 750 underprivileged children, and a team of 150 enthusiastic, green-shirted volunteers — students, faculty and staff — helped dispense them to neighborhood families. “This is one of those great opportunities we have to express our love and support for our community,” said Dean of Students Pastor Tim Griffin as he surveyed the hustle and bustle outside the Arena. “It’s a wonderful time of year to do that, a chance to capture the moment. This is Grand Canyon at its best.”
