Firefighters told KOKI-TV that they wanted to do something different this year to help families during the holidays. The department raised $5,300 in about 24 hours to take care of the balances.

A large donation that came in Monday brought in enough money for six bicycles that will be delivered Christmas morning.

The layaway debt added up to about $4,200.
