The men and women who keep us safe on the highways of southern Nevada brought the holiday spirit to children and the homeless Wednesday.
The Nevada Highway Patrol delivered toys to children at University Medical Center, Sunrise Children's Hospital and St. Rose Dominican Siena Campus.
Troopers gave $10 from their paychecks for the past year. All the money was used to buy the gifts for the kids.
"It is the greatest gift that anyone can ask for. When you see a child's eyes light up, for that one moment, it takes away the pain and really helps them get through the holiday seasons," Trooper Jeremie Elliott said.
The troopers also donated blankets to homeless people camping near I-15 and D Street.
