Santa Claus came to town a few days early to visit hospitalized children Wednesday.
Volunteer Bill Turney donned the red suit and distributed toys to sick kids. Before he rode the elevator up to the patients’ floor, Turney was already in tears.
“It’s a happy thing, but it’s also a sad thing. Because these children are sick and they shouldn’t be sick in the first place. They’re just babies, but I know that kind of stuff happens," Turney said. "So, we’re here to make them smile for a little bit, forget about their problems and have a whole lot of fun.”
