PHOENIX -- A high school sophomore wants to make sure that nearly 30 Phoenix families have what they need for Christmas.

Socorro Nieves has rallied fellow students at Franklin Police and Fire High School to help collect food, clothing and toys for the selected families.

"I've walked in those shoes and know exactly what it feels like to not have much on a daily basis and the holidays," said Nieves. "It feels good to give back."

The effort has been dubbed "Operation Soul" and will run until Dec. 16.

Trees and donation boxes are located at a variety of locations throughout Phoenix:

• 520 W. Washington St.

• 12220 N. 39th Ave.

• 2075 E. Maryland Ave.

• 1902 S. 16th St.

• 400 W. Southern Ave.

• 16030 N. 56th St.

• 1645 W. McDowell Road

• 1725 W. Williams Drive, Suite 35
