MAHOPAC, N.Y. - On Saturday, Dec. 9, the Mahopac and Mahopac Falls fire departments held their annual Candy Runs to visit the children and families of the community. Despite the snowy conditions, Mahopac’s bravest traveled all around town collecting toys for the Toys for Tots program while delivering candy canes to the kids.

While snow fell throughout the day, Santa and Mrs. Claus were able to keep their appointed rounds accompanied by the firefighters and EMS staff for a tradition that is nearly 50 years old.
