Local couple ensure Christmas cheer


During this holiday season, leaders of “The Streets Don’t Love You Back” movement, Robert and Lucinda Boyd, delivered toys and goodies to children across the Valley as part of their fourth annual toy drive .

The group gathered toys from drop boxes placed throughout Maricopa and received donations by mail.

“We give 365 days a year but in holiday season, we make sure our kids have a smile on their face and in their heart,” Robert Boyd said.

Dozens of children and families gathered at Seven Cups Coffee to celebrate Christmas and unwrap gifts.

The Boyds met some of the children through the Phoenix Boys Center, a boxing club founded 45 years ago by Lucinda Boyd’s uncle Al Fenn. The purpose of the club is to provide a place where boys could get off the street and have a space to exercise and box.

“When God blesses you, you bless others,” Robert Boyd said.
