Santa, Levittown FD delivers Christmas cheer to families in need

Posted: Updated:
LEVITTOWN -

The Levittown Fire Department helped Santa deliver hundreds of gifts this Christmas to families in need.

The gifts were donated by the community through the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program. More than 7,000 toys were collected since mid-November as a result of their efforts.

Miller's Ale House arranged for Santa to deliver the gifts at their facility for the 10th year, and the Levittown Fire Department helped Santa deliver gifts.

Santa visited 10 families this year and delivered 300 toys to children, including 5-year-old Lou Mendez.

Mendez was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer last summer with doctors giving him six to nine months to live.
