Santa delivers gifts to children in need through Al's Angels

Posted: Updated:

Santa Claus made a special delivery early this holiday to children in need.

Saint Nick arrived at an apartment in Bridgeport carrying an armful of gifts for 5-year-old Annali Tzen, who recently graduated from preschool.

The early holiday celebration was made possible by Al's Angels, a nonprofit that delivers holiday cheer to thousands of children across the tri-state area.

Al's Angels helps families battling cancer, rare blood disease and severe financial hardship, passing gifts out to organizations and businesses that get them into the hands of children.
