"It was magical," he says. For 25 years he has spread his own magic, donning a Santa suit and distributing donated gifts in the reservation's poorest areas, where half the households live in poverty and unemployment is 40 percent. Kids get "so excited and grateful, it fills me with emotion," says Maryboy, who throws a Christmas party and food-box giveaway for more than 1,000 people. "He's one of the most caring people I've met," says Marianne Felt, 54, a Salt Lake City psychotherapist who heads a band of volunteer elves who help with the gift giving. Maryboy, who is also a traditional Navajo medicine man, says the work has its rewards. "To see the eyes of the children light up," he says, "it warms my heart."

He dragged them home and did some repairs. "My mom's idea was to give them away," says Lillard, now 15. "My idea was to make it into a bigger project." That he has. Persuading a band of pals to pitch in, Lillard formed Clayton's Vicki Gil, 49, who works as a personal assistant, "and developed skills for bringing people together." For Lillard the real treat is making personal deliveries, like the time he delivered bikes to one woman's eight kids, who promptly hopped on and tore down the street. "It's a good feeling," says Lillard, "to know you made someone happy."
