Santa visits Hannibal Fire Department
Hannibal, Mo. —
Santa made a stop at the Hannibal Fire Department on Saturday.
Jolly Saint Nick stopped by the department to let all the kids give him their Christmas wishlists.
This year, the department donated 1,000 toy firetrucks from Toys For Tots as well as some they bought with their own money.
Hannibal Fire Department's Mark Kempker said the event allows the community to interact with firefighters in a way outside of tragedy.
"Plus, gives them a chance to see the firetruck, they get gifts, and they just get to explore a different a different avenue with having an opportunity to come in here and see fire men in a more relaxed environment," Said Kempker.
The Hannibal Fire Department has been holding the event for more than fifty years.
