The Greenawalds Fire Department, stationed out of South Whitehall, was spreading some Christmas cheer of its own.

Its annual "Santa Run" delivered Christmas gifts to children across the Lehigh Valley.

Firefighters also bought and wrapped gifts for three families who are in need this holiday season.

The fire company also collected close to $1,600 in restaurant gift cards and entertainment tickets and worked with vendors at the Allentown Farm Market to provide a Christmas meal.
