ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Our military heroes have given up a lot to help defend our freedom so on Saturday their families got some special deliveries from the big guy himself: Santa Claus!
He and Mrs. Claus made an early stop in Rockford to make some special deliveries. Santa also brought some helpers from the Marine Corps to help pass out toys to about 65 kids. It’s all part of the Toys for Tots campaign. The kids were specially picked to receive presents and they seemed pretty excited.
"Very fun. The best part was when the presents came out,” brothers Dominic and Michael Zodda said.
RFD hopes to make this an annual event.
