OGDEN -- Students at Bonneville High School presented Weber County sheriff's officers with a donation of $7,000 on Friday.

The money was raised throughout the school year through a variety of efforts spearheaded by the school's student government, said Deputy Jeff Lemberes.

The department uses the money to fund its annual Christmas-time shopping trips with underprivileged children.

Lemberes said the money from the school has been the program's sole funding source for the last four years.

"I don't know where we'd be without it," Lemberes said.

The program serves 60 to 70 children each year.
