Why Blue Santa
It has been said, "No one calls 911 to tell police that all is well with their lives." In the course of a police officers’ routine work we often encounter children in circumstances and environments that are heartbreaking. Many of the children that police interact with only know Christmas as nothing more than a school holiday. Many families must choose between gifts and basic utility needs, leaving little resources for presents at Christmas time. Regardless of the whys, all children deserve presents at Christmas.
Blue Santa Philosophy
All children deserve to smile on Christmas day. Christmas is one time during the year where the focus is on giving, with emphasis on the excitement in the child's eye as he or she unwraps a present that is just for them.
Officers and volunteers collect and wrap a huge number of toys during the weeks prior to Christmas. Toy Drives are held at local businesses throughout the season.
