After holding their third annual toy drive, Forever Angels, helped deliver gifts to local hospitals on Sunday.

The man in red, helped.

"It's all about Santa and the magic that Santa brings.  The smile on their faces just makes it worthwhile for sure," says Sarah Wunderlich, with Forever Angels.

Santa brought each child currently staying in the hospital some presents.

Other gifts are left behind for the kids who stay in the coming weeks.

"They have no idea that we're coming so it makes a nice surprise to them and actually the parents are excited too because it gives them a sense of support when they there with their kids," says Jaime Sanks with Forever Angels.

For Sanks, who does a lot of the Forever Angels organizing, the experience came full circle when her daughter was in the ER.

"Somebody came and brought her a little stuffed animal which completely calmed her down," says Sanks.

 

The Forever Angels aren't the only ones remembering those in closed quarters this time of year.

7–year–old Cameron Steinblock was hospitalized in early 2013.

His time at St. Elizabeth Regional Medical Center inspired the Cameron Art Cart, which he continually stocks.

Sunday, his family dropped off new supplies.
