San Diego firefighters deliver gifts to nine local families

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - They're real-life heroes, and they're also Santa's helpers.

San Diego firefighters delivered toys and presents from Santa to underprivileged kids and families. The tradition goes back 24 years.

Firefighters loaded up a sleigh and stuffed a fire truck with goodies.

This year, nine lucky families are getting an avalanche of gifts.

"We bring Santa in our fire engine… and it means a lot to these kids. It really does. They don't have anything but for us coming here and bringing them something to make their Christmas that much brighter," Frank De Clercq of San Diego City Firefighters said.

The firefighters' Christmas gift project is the result of a team effort with San Diego City Schools and generous corporate sponsors.
