On Christmas Eve, Greenacres Fire Chief Mark Pure and several fire-rescue employees, joined Santa Claus and Councilman Anderson Thelusme at the pediatric unit at Palms West Hospital. Shown above, they delivered hundreds of toys to more than 50 sick children to brighten their spirits on Christmas Eve. Thelusme read to the children. Santa visited each room and spent time with the children and gave them toys and presents from his sack. “It truly was a rewarding experience,” Pure said. There were “high fives” and many hugs were given. The children really appreciated the gifts.
