Blue Santa Donation from Share Art Heal
Share Art Heal has donated 50 100 piece Kids Art Kits to Austin's Blue Santa. They're still collecting toys! Here is a list of toy drop off locations around Austin.
The mission of the Austin Police Operation Blue Santa is to provide toys and food for families in need during the Holiday Season. They achieve this goal with the goodwill and support of Austin residents, businesses, and civic groups. They provide families with a full holiday meal and toys for each child up to the age of 14. Packages are delivered to the family by their volunteers – Santa’s Helpers.
Austin Police Operation Blue Santa is a 501(c)(3) – non-profit, community based corporation, governed by a board of directors and staffed by volunteers and employees of the Austin Police Department. Support is provided by the Austin Police Department, Austin Fire Department, Austin Energy, Austin Water Utilities and the Texas National Guard, area businesses, organizations, and the Central Texas community.
This charitable outreach began in 1972 when two patrol officers realized that some families on the patrol beat would not have gifts or food for their children at Christmas . Their service began with about 20 needy families, this year they will easily serve over 5000 families.
Thank you for providing christmas to so many folks.
