History

This community service program was started in the 1960’s by police officer at the time, Al Myers, who collected toys and gifts from fellow officers, for a family on Christmas Eve who had nothing.  He saw the need and continued helping those in need in the community until his failing health forced him to retire in 2001 from the program.  At that time Judy Padgett took over the program and continues to help as many as possible each year so that children and families will have a better holiday.
