Santa Claus delivered gifts to a family whose home was gutted by fire


While Santa is busy delivering millions of toys to children around the world.. some of his helpers paid a special visit to a family in the Lehigh Valley.

Tom Ring of Brown-Daub Kia and several of his workers paid a surprise visit to the Snyder family at the Marriott Residence Inn in Hanover Township.. Lehigh County.

That's where Melissa Snyder and her four kids had to move after a fire caused massive damage to their Salisbury Township home on Tuesday night.


Friends of the family say they reached out to the auto dealer.. who didn't hesitate for a moment to help the Snyders celebrate Christmas.

Snyder says she was "overwhelmed and grateful that there's good people in the world that care about other families".  Snyder told 69 News she had no idea she was getting the special visit.
