As they have during each holiday season for the last four decades, East Meadow Fire Department volunteers took a brief time out from their heroic duties to don a different kind of superhero suit. Jolly old Santa himself — and his elves — delivered toys to each child on NUMC Pediatrics ward and spread a little holiday cheer. The volunteer firefighters brought at least one toy per child, hoping to brighten the day for children suffering from various illnesses. The volunteer firefighters were joined by NUMC officials.
