BAKERSFIELD, CA—Not even a pandemic could keep Santa Claus from making sure Head Start students attending the Harvey L. Hall Child Development Center received a Christmas present this year. On Dec. 22, 2020, Siren the Rescue Dog, accompanied by Hall Ambulance helpers, delivered more than 75 wrapped Christmas presents to the center.
For the past four years, Hall Ambulance has arranged for Santa, accompanied by Siren, to deliver a wrapped present to each student at the center with their name on it. Later that evening, the students would return with their family members to enjoy holiday refreshments and family pictures with Santa.
When this year’s event had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, Siren arranged for Santa to send toys for special delivery.
