Bismarck firefighters deliver presents to hospitals

BISMARCK, N.D. - Santa isn't the only one delivering presents. Bismarck Firefighters went to Sanford and St. Alexis to deliver presents to children spending Christmas in the hospital.

The Firefighters partnered with businesses who donated the presents and say they just wanted to do their part in brightening up the holidays for families going through tough times.

"It's a joy. It's great. Firefighters have families; they can appreciate the little ones stuck in the hospital missing the holidays at home. And we know that's stress put on families; having a little one in the hospital,” Bismarck Fire Marshal Owen Fitzsimmons said.

This is the 7th year the firefighters have delivered presents to children in the hospital. They gave out gifts to 28 of them.
