Firefighters respond to Christmas emergency

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Firefighters responded to a different emergency in Cedar Falls Wednesday night.

Cedar Falls firefighters took nine students in-need on a Christmas shopping spree at Walmart. The children filled their carts with presents for family as well as presents for themselves.

"A lot of these kids haven't had a care free year and to allow then an opportunity to not worry about where the money is coming from is really exciting for us," said Cedar Falls Firefighter John Boswick.

This is the second year for Walmart to sponsor the shopping spree. The Cedar Falls Fire Department hopes to make it an annual event.
