The San Marcos Police Department Blue Santa Program has been committed to providing toys for children during the Christmas season for over 30 years. Each year the program serves 350 to 400 local families, which includes 1000-1500 kids, ages infant to 12 years old. Not only does Blue Santa provide for individual families, we’ve also assisted CASA, DHS, CPS, the Children’s and Women’s Shelters, Centro Cultural Center kids program and the Southside Community Center. With the onset of COVID-19, providing gifts for the kids will be a greater challenge for many more families this year.
Fortunately, the SMPD Blue Santa program began purchasing toys before the COVID-19 shutdowns in March of this year, but we still have much more shopping to do. The pandemic put a halt to any fundraiser efforts for Blue Santa, which would have provided needed funds for toy purchases.
Blue Santa needs your help. We have set up a pay-pal account for San Marcos PD Blue Santa.
Your donations to Blue Santa go directly into an account managed by the San Marcos Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, a 501c3 organization. All the funds will be used to purchase toys.
