TEMPE, Ariz. -- Phoenix Police officers will join with firefighters and law-enforcement officers from all over the Valley on Friday to shop the 27th Annual W. Steven Martin Police and Fire 911 Toy Drive in Tempe.
This year W. Steven Martin and the Toy Drive will honor Phoenix police Lt. Bob Sparks (#3186), who shared and cared for Arizona children and Families for over 30 years, with a special shopping section of the warehouse.
The 911 Toy Drive has been responsible for bringing Christmas joy to children and families for many, many years thanks to the generosity and dedication of W. Steven. Officers and firefighters take great pride in participating in the drive and we look forward to this special event every year.
