There were no alarms or smoke at St. Alexius Thursday, but a group of firefighters arrived just the same in their big, red fire truck. Parked outside the Medical Center, out of the truck came four firefighters and their chaplain, but they didn’t enter with hoses… they entered with two large, red sacks of Christmas presents!
The firefighters visited St. Alexius’ The Children’s Center to give kids an opportunity to have some fun, despite being hospitalized and sick or injured. Each child received a wrapped gift. Older children received their choice of free movie or bowling passes. Not only did the kids and their parents have fun, the firefighters had fun too!
