Standing O is at it again!

New York’s kindest: Santa gets a little help in stuffing his bag with toys and goodies from a New York City firefighter from Engine Co. 214 to deliver to all the boys and girls at Interfaith Medical Center.

Sleigh bells ringing

Let’s give a great big “ho, ho, ho” Standing O to Santa. The man in the red suit left his sleigh behind and hitched a ride with Engine Co. 214-Ladder Co. 111 in Bedford-Stuyvesant to visit Interfaith Medical Center‘s Winter Wonderland. The lobby of the hospital was transformed into a snowy delight just so Santa would feel at home.

The jolly old elf and his smoke-eater helpers delivered the hottest items on this year’s wish list, including “Frozen” dolls, talking Iron Man figures, toy cars, and board games to preschoolers and kindergarteners.

The children — hailing from The Weeksville School (PS 243), PS 335, PS 305, Medgar Evers Daycare Center, Community Parents Head Start, Stuyvesant Heights Daycare, and Safe Haven Day Care received gifts and photos with Santa.

Interfaith Medical Center [1545 Atlantic Ave. between Albany and Troy avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant, (718) 613–4000].
