KRLD (GRAND PRAIRIE) — Grand Prairie Police officer Mark Calvert spends his free time each fall working to help Grand Prairie families in need.
As part of the department’s Santa Cop program, Officer Calvert helps gather and deliver toys and clothing to needy children and families in the area.
“Everything he does, he gives it 110 percent all the time,” said fellow officer Kyle Burrough. “He’s on the go. What he’s on the go for is nothing for him — very, very selfless.”
For his efforts, officer Calvert is this week’s KRLD Community Hero.
