LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – An annual holiday season event in Ludlow involving Santa and a lot of generous people.
The Ludlow fire department was Santa’s first stop during his annual Toys for Tots Christmas parade. Families with gifts were waiting to fill Santa’s sleigh with gifts for needy children.
We’re told this is a season of need for many people living on the margins.
Amy Sjolander of Ludlow told 22News, “It’s incredible how many children out there have nothing. Don’t even have beds to sleep on. And let alone toys. The parents have nothing to give them.”
Families were waiting to continue to Santa’s Toys for Tots mission. All day the man in the red suit would stay on the go, receiving Toys for Tots at a variety of key locations concluding his collections at Ludlow town hall.
