S H O U T O U T : A Garfield family will get a magical treat tomorrow afternoon when Santa Claus and his “helpers” arrive at their house with a Christmas tree, decorations, lights and $1,000 or so worth of presents.
Each year, Garfield Fire Co. #3 selects a recipient from the local schools for its Adopt-a-Family Santa Run.
That family, in turn, provides a list of children in the household, their ages, needs, and favorite toys. The company then does the rest. Local businesses also helps.
This year’s family has two children — a boy, 5, and a girl, 7.
Assistant Chief Edward Morano and his girlfriend, Amanda Yarmula ( above ), bought several sets of clothes, pajamas, jackets, gloves hats, scarves, socks, sweaters, as well as many toys — including a bicycle — for each child.
And they’ll all be wrapped.
Santa’s ETA: 1 p.m.
