MAHOPAC, N.Y. - On Saturday, Dec. 14, the Mahopac and Mahopac Falls volunteer fire departments braved the inclement weather and held their annual Candy Cane Runs to visit the children and families of the community.

Mahopac’s bravest traveled all around town on their fire trucks collecting toys for the Toys for Tots program while handing out candy canes to the kids along the way.

Santa and Mrs. Claus kept their appointed rounds accompanied by the firefighters and EMS staff for a Mahopac/Mahopac Falls tradition that is nearly 50 years old.
