The Franklin Lakes Fire Department has once again called in a favor and scheduled the very busy Mr. and Mrs. Claus to stop by the Bender Court Fire House.
On Sunday, Dec. 9, the department will host Santa and his lovely wife, and provide hot chocolate, cookies and presents to all the little boys and girls, according to Firefighter Joe Gallup.
The Clauses are expected to arrive at headquarters at 2 p.m. and stay until 5 p.m.
"As a good will gesture, please offer a donation to the Red Cross for families affected by Hurricane Sandy. They have suffered unimaginable losses and are less fortunate than we are this Holiday Season," said Gallup. "These donations are desperately needed and sincerely appreciated."
