CHICO, Calif. — Hundreds of children in Chico were surprised by a personal visit from Santa on Saturday, when he came rolling up to their homes in a fire truck and distributed toys courtesy of the Chico Fire Department and several local sponsors.
The children, whose families were recommended by local social service groups, were able to have a much jollier Christmas this year because of donations made by the community and by local stores like the Dollar Tree, Walmart, Craig Hall Student Living and Lowe's, among many others.
