Local firefighters are taking donations in hopes of delivering holiday cheer and smiles to kids that are spending this Christmas in the hospital. Gifts of all kinds or monetary donations are welcome and can be delivered to Station 1 at 201 E. Picacho in Las Cruces! Gifts will be delivered on Christmas Eve to both local hospitals, Memorial Medical Center and Mountain View Regional Medical Center  by Santa’s Firefighter Helpers.

Anything will help their efforts in making these children in local hospitals feel like it's really Christmas. So when you're out doing last minute shopping, pick up a small gift for a child that will be happy to see it on Christmas morning.
