ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Everyone has their own ways of spreading the holiday spirit.
Evangela Stanley becomes Santa for families who stop into her 19th Ward restaurant in Rochester. She handed out toys to children at her People’s Choice Kitchen on Brooks Avenue.
Firefighters and community groups helped.
Santa Claus showed up on his sleigh with a police escort.
"Actually giving kids in need a Christmas," said Stanley. "With what’s going on with the pandemic, a lot of families weren’t able to afford getting gifts for their kids, so I reached out to all my partners and friends and we were able to raise enough to purchase like 300 toys for local kids in need."
It’s the second year that Stanley has served her neighborhood this way.
