BREA KINIG NIEWS ! Phil and Carolyn Soto (front) and Sheriff Greg Hagwood look over a giant pile of toys at the Sheriff's Office in Quincy on Thursday, Nov. 12. Hagwood said the Soto's Christmas donation might be the largest his office has received during his six years as sheriff. Photo by Dan McDonald receives ion raeagle couple Phil and Carolyn Soto have been regular contributors to the Sheriffs Christmas Toy Drive for at least 10 years. But when they dropped off this year's donation, the sheriff was visibly overwhelmed by their generosity. The Soto's SUV was so skillfully stuffed with toys that even Santa himself would have been proud. Resembling a sleigh loaded with gifts, there was just enough room left for the Graeagle couple to sit as they rolled in to tlie sheriffs Quincy office Thursday afternoon, Nov. 12. Phil Soto said it's the biggest load of toys they have delivered to the sheriff. Greg Hagw0od said it might be the largest single donation he's seen during his six years as sheriff. "Mr. and Mrs. Soto have been a wonderful friend to the sheriffs office. We are lucky to have them in our community," Hagwood said. "This donation will be greatly appreciated by the children who will have a wonderful Christmas thanks to their kind hearts." Hagwood and Soto said their friendship dates back to the 1980s when Soto worked for the Department of Justice. Soto retired from the DOJ in 1998. He and Carolyn spend their retirement living in both Graeagle and Sacramento. All the toys the Sotos donate are brand new. But Phil said they don't buy them all at once. He said he's good at finding bargains. "I start looking the day after Christmas when they are on sale," Phil said, as Carolyn added, "The people in Target call him by name." The Sheriff Employees Association will be accepting toy donations for its Needy Children's Program through Christmas. New toy donations can be made at the Sheriffs Office in Quincy or at any of the substations in the county.

Pretty soon, I have a created a doll with a distinct soul and voice -- each one is unique," said Wescoatt.
