Michigan volunteer effort provides gifts for foster children

From the Associated Press and posted by our media partner at WOOD TV:

WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Thousands of Michigan foster children have gifts to open this holiday season through the efforts of 2,000 volunteers.

The Lansing State Journal reports Operation Good Cheer collects roughly 20,000 gifts for 7,000 foster children. The effort started nearly 50 years ago with 50 kids and one pilot, and now involves 250 airplanes and 34 semi-trucks.

One man collects the gifts and  ensures they get where they need to go. That's Mike Pipia, global logistics manager for Guardian Industries.
