Photo: members of Grand Canyon youth groups Young Life and Wyldlife help to organize Grand Canyon community food baskets. They added a special touch this year by donating prayer cards and candy canes. Below, Community Church Pastor Patrick Dotson, Xanterra General Manager Jon Streit, Kevin, Danielle, Tyler and Kylie Hartigan, Kylie Donehoo and Kyla Pearce help to deliver to those in need over the holiday season. Carrie Putz, Assistant Manager of the Grand Canyon General Store coordinates the food basket program by soliciting donations and lists of needy families from local businesses in Grand Canyon and Tusayan, ordering the food supplies, inviting volunteers to pack the boxes, and planning the delivery of the food baskets. There were 60 food baskets delivered to needy families in Grand Canyon, Tusayan, and Valle. In addition, over 50 gifts were donated as part of the "Angel Tree" program at the Grand Canyon General Store and delivered to children in those communities.
