Caring for the Community, Spreading Holiday Cheer

Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves visited Easton on Saturday and Sunday to deliver early presents and holiday cheer. Two ambulance sleighs full of Easton Emergency Medical Service crews brought smiles to the faces of children and seniors as the visitors from the North Pole made their stops.

While making the rounds, Sanata, Mrs. Claus and their tour guide elf were able to visit with children, a few canine friends and even stopped to help get a family of ducks across a busy roadway! They did some socially distanced sightseeing along the way.

The Sunday crew delivered homemade breads, baked by EMTs and volunteers, to shut-ins. The recent snowfall made Santa and Mrs. Claus feel right at home.
