Arizona Highway Patrol Association (AHPA) kicks off their annual Comfort Bear Toy Drive beginning April 1st through 30th. Designed to collect stuffed toys to help console children impacted by tragedy, the AHPA is urging those willing to help to drop off a new stuffed animal at any participating Phoenix, Tucson, or Yuma Papa Murphy’s Pizza location.  Donate and receive a coupon for $5.00 off any family size pizza!  For Papa Murphy locations near you, go to:

These stuffed toys are distributed to law enforcement personnel throughout the state to use with effected children to provide contentment during a crisis. Additionally, the effort serves as a reminder to these children that law enforcement will always be there to help.  “Comfort Bears” are usually kept in the trunks of law enforcement vehicles for immediate use after a traumatic situation.
