Toys for children in need filled a Green Valley fire truck Thursday afternoon.
 
Residents of the Quail Creek donated gifts to the Real life Santa. Eric Caldwell has been dressing up as Santa for more than 20 years and begins buying gifts for children throughout the year. 
 
He says, "I stock pile them until December and then I bring them here."
 
Caldwell says he collects these toys all year long. Buying what strikes him and what he thinks kids would play with. 
 
Those toys then fill up the Green Valley fire truck - serving more than 90 children and 29 families throughout town.
