The Toys for Kids program once again treated some lucky children to Arizona Sundogs tickets, teddy bears and toy trucks. Donna Lepordo said this is the eighth year for the program and, sadly, the first year without its founder, her husband, Ed, who passed away this summer.

Jerry McCabe, Lepordo's business partner and co-owner of McWhite's North American Van Lines was on hand to help unload gifts from their van at Tim's Toyota Center this past week.

Prescott Valley Police officer Nancy Roberts helped pick the children for the program this year and worked closely with the Prescott and Humboldt Unified school districts. The kids, "are shining examples from the schools that are deserving of this program," Roberts said.

The children, along with their parents, toured the TTC arena and later, met with members of the Sundogs in the locker room for their surprise gifts and an autograph session.

Article comment by: Thanks... to PVPD

Thank you to Officer Nancy Roberts who represented the PVPD very well with the program. With all the negative things that have happened at PVPD it's nice to see a honest, hard working officer making a difference in the community. It's to bad that people don't seem to notice when officers do great things like this as much as the negative things they do. The community needs an officer like Officer Roberts to represent the PVPD more often. She is a shinning example of how an officer should be, on and off duty!!!!
