A family got a surprise visit from the Eunice Fire Department – and it wasn’t because their house was on fire.

A family was hit by thieves, who stole Christmas presents, money and other items from their home on December 23. The next day, the Eunice Fire Department delivered a fire truck full of presents to the family.

“This is how a community comes together to help a family at Christmas time,” a post by Eunice City Marshal Terry Darbonne states. “Thanks to everyone who made their Christmas come true. God bless everyone involved.”

Here’s a video he posted of the event:
