It turns out that Santa’s workshop has outsourced some of its toy business to a flight training school operating out of Chandler’s municipal airport.

On Dec. 9, an estimated 500 people brought toys and canned goods to a large aircraft hangar where John and Diana Walkup of Chandler Air Service held their 20th annual Toys for Tots Hangar Party. 

In exchange for live music and a barbecue meal with all the fixings, attendees donated approximately 1,500 new, unwrapped toys valued at $30,000, including 18 bicycles. The toys and food were distributed to local families by the Chandler Compadres, a nonprofit organization that provides support for East Valley families in need.
