Trending: Seattle shooting rattles tech leaders and raises concerns about safety of city’s urban core

Amazon Box

The mysterious giant Amazon boxes that have been popping up around the U.S. are mysteries no more: the Seattle-based retail giant has spreading some holiday cheer the past week delivering them to charitable organizations that help kids.

Employees from Amazon’s fulfillment centers will deliver a total of 15 boxes to groups around the country, including a Boys & Girls Club in Kenosha, Wisconsin and a children’s hospital in San Antonio, Texas. Each box contains over $5,000 in toys, gifts and other equipment that recipient organizations say they need.

The company’s home city of Seattle won’t be left out: Amazon is slated to deliver a big box to Seattle Children’s Hospital on Monday afternoon.

Amazon’s boxes were first sighted in Seattle and San Francisco a week ago. At the time, the company said that they were a part of a “new program,” but declined to provide further details.
