COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - "I got like Hello Kitty shirts, a jacket, a green jacket, and some other stuff," said Mia Delgado.
Santa came to Collier County this morning. But for some families, he came disguised as fire fighters from the Big Corkscrew Fire Department.
"We bought gifts and wrapped them," said Barry Liebowitz.
Then the presents were delivered one by one. Tiffany Duff said without these gifts there would have been less presents under their tree.
"Christmas gets a little bit harder every year now," said Duff.
The families were selected with the help of Destiny Church.
"It's pretty cool and nice for them to be giving us these presents and it was nice for them to come out here and do it," said Ethan Franklin.
And the fire fighters said it was just as much of a gift for them
"It's tough because we can only do so much there's so many kids out there and families that are in need but just to be able to help a couple people is good," said Liebowitz.
As it was for these children and families in need.
"Christmas is not all about giving presents, it's about care and joy and caring for others," said Delgado.
