(KMOV.com) -- Christmas came early for children at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital Monday.

Cardinal left fielder Matt Holliday made a special delivery with a fire truck loaded with toys.

He and his wife handed out the gifts to patients.

“It gives us an opportunity to come and just try to be friends,” he said. “Try to give them hope and just to use the platform I’ve been given.”

14-year-old Mackenzie Scott collected the hundreds of toys through the Fire Truck o’ Toys charity, designed to bring toys to sick and injured children.
