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.
