THE BRONX - Santa Claus dropped by a Bronx health clinic to help spread awareness this holiday season.

Santa handed out clean needles, condoms and other items to patients at CitiWide Harm Reduction on East 144th Street, which is dedicated to helping the homeless and recovering addicts.

The center has already gained attentions this month after it released a video depicting a man who is about to inject himself with a dirty needle, only to be welcomed inside the organization's door and offered clean needles from Kris Kringle.
