Holiday cheer was spread around the state by many who didn't even have the day off to spend with their own family and friends. 

Presents were handed out by several police officers and firefighters who were working in their communities the day before Christmas. 

In Avondale, firefighters had bags filled with toys that they handed out to kids. Crews with the Avondale Fire & Medical teams had a group of children and families gathered by their fire truck as they passed out toys to many children on Christmas Eve. 

And in Tucson, several police officers went above and beyond when they saw children in need. 

Officer Avilez saw a mother and her son waiting for a bus last week and stopped to speak with them, but what the pair didn't know was that the officer had gifts in his trunk. He gave the little boy some gifts wrapped in festive red paper.

Officers Pedersen and Doyle, both K9 officers, were responding to a domestic violence call according to the Tucson Police Department on Christmas Eve when they learned that a small child was going to be removed from the home. The pair left and then came back with a puppy patrol play set that they purchased for the kid "to ensure the child was still able to enjoy the Christmas time."
