On Monday morning, the Sioux Falls Fire Rescue began handing out gifts to children who are spending their Christmas in a hospital.
One firefighter even surprised the kids by dressing up as jolly ole' Saint Nick.
Every year the department raises money for the event and delivers the presents to Avera, Sanford and the Children's Inn.
This year they bought more than $3,000 worth of gifts.
