Santa answered a special call on Saturday evening to the residence of Amanda VanderWerf of Franklin Avenue. Amanda was in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia during the annual Santa run hosted by the Fire Department. Santa gathered up all of his elves and was escorted to Amanda’s house by members of the fire department to personally deliver her Christmas present. Amanda received her present with all of the grace one would expect and got a special hug from Santa as well. Amanda also took the time to take a picture with the members of the department. The members of the Fire Department would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Amanda’s family for allowing us to participate in this event and we wish all the best to Amanda as she continues to recover.
