Well known for their charity fundraising, volunteer firefighters of Thorold's Protection Hose Company raised the spirits of children and patients of the St. Catharines General Hospital. As we rush to complete those last minute Christmas errands and look forward to time with our families, some are missing the comfort of their homes. Members of PHC dedicated their time on Sunday (December 21) with Santa, Rudolf, and helper elves to spread some Christmas cheer,
"I cringe every time I miss an opportunity to wear the suit (Santa) and make kids smile." says Ken Meloche. This is the first time PHC has made visited the hospital. But, after the reception from the patients and wonderful staff,we will return next year. Photos by Russ Colosi of PHC.
