Santa Claus comes to town

Santa Claus made a stop in Fordham Tuesday to hand out presents to children.



As excited kids bounced with glee, adults helped Santa by handing out about 300 presents.



Al DiGuido, the Santa behind the event, is the founder of Al's Angels, a nonprofit organization that helps children and families experiencing hardships.



"We're here to bring joy and love and happiness to so many kids," said the costumed Santa.



Parents on a budget said they appreciated the gifts because the event lessened the financial strain at home.



Santa also made a pit stop at St. Barnabas Hospital to hand out more gifts.
