Firefighters get to play Santa to seniors

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Cedar Rapids firefighters will deliver gifts and test smoke alarms in 91 homes throughout the community this week as part of the "Be Santa to a Senior" program.

The program's goal is to provide a gift for a senior citizen who may not have family in the area or who are having a difficult time financially.

Eighteen giving trees were located throughout the community in which individuals could select a senior citizen's name and purchase them a gift.

Starting Monday and continuing through Wednesday, in addition to delivering the gifts, firefighters will make sure that there are working smoke alarms in the home.
