|Santa and Mrs. Clause came on a horse and carriage to the Bronx Zoo,|
where they delivered hundreds of toys to the children of veterans.
Included among the veterans was Jeans Cruz, the Bronxite who found Saddam Hussein.
Children received sports balls, action figures, dolls, and much, much more. The National Guard also showed up half way through to give kids some of their swag, including backpacks and winter hats.
We caught up with Cruz for a minute to ask him about the event and the news that the last soldiers were leaving Iraq. He said he was very appreciative for the donations, adding that it's difficult for him to buy multiple gifts for each of his four children. Also, he said, two of his children have birthdays a week before Christmas.
