PHILADELPHIA -- An annual toy drive by the Philadelphia Regional Limousine Association never fails to convey the true meaning of Christmas and why business priorities in life never come first.

PRLA operators gather each December to form a convoy of limousines that deliever toys to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, where Santa Claus goes door-to-door delivering the goods. The ninth annual "Limo By Santa" event, held on Dec. 15 this year, is coordinated by Philip and Linda Jagiela, owners of Aries Transportation Group in Southampton, Penn. Philip, who plays the role of Santa, also is president of the PRLA.

Particpating limousine companies, vendors, and agencies included: Best of Times Limousine, Christa Lauren Limousine, Global Limousine, Profile Transportation, Lakeview Custom Coach, Limousine Digest, and the Philadelphia Parking Authority.

"The Philadelphia Parking Authority made all the arrangements to start our journey and coordinate with the Philadelphia police for escort service through the center of the city," Philip Jagiela reported. "The hospital staff was extremely thankful for our generosity and has invited our association to return Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012. Start your toy collections now folks."
