Santa Claus is coming to town on Saturday — rain or shine — for the mayor’s annual tree-lighting ceremony, along with a host of other kid-friendly activities in downtown Burbank.
At the event, the Burbank Fire Department will be collecting unwrapped toys and sporting goods for local needy children. The toys will be distributed through the Burbank Temporary Aid Center and the Family Service Agency.
“Everything we collect in town stays in town,” said Burbank Fire Capt. Peter Hendrickson, adding that officials will be collecting toys through Christmas Eve.
