Operation Blue Santa Thanks Everyone for Cookies and Cocoa with Santa Success

December 14, 2018 - Operation Blue Santa would like to thank everyone that came out and supported us at the 2nd Cookies and Cocoa with Santa. We had approximately 75 kids and a few adults come through and have their pictures taken with Santa.

While waiting on pictures everyone enjoyed a Christmas movie, and a great variety of goodies including cookies, cupcakes, brownies, snack cakes, donuts, kalaches, popcorn, spiced tea, and of course Cocoa with all the fixings!

A Big thank you to our local businesses that donated these great treats: Center Walmart, Center Brookshire Brothers, Center’s Best Donuts, Sassy Red’s Bakery, Java Junkies (Vintage Junkie), Just For You (Saundra Christopher) and Shelby County Today for taking our Santa Pictures.

We would also like to say Congratulations to our raffle winners. Carmella King was the winner of the toy drive raffle and won a 32 inch smart TV, DVD player and other Christmas goodies that were donated by Center Walmart. Miranda Thornburgh was the winner of the beautiful Christmas wreath that was donated by the Center Police Department Ladies Auxiliary.

Carmella King was the winner of the toy drive raffle.

We sure hope everyone had a good time and look forward to seeing you next year. With your help and donations we will be able to provide Christmas to over 200 kids. Operation Blue Santa and the Blue Santa Elves are now ready to check their list and gather up all the toys for the children in need.

Phone calls will be made soon when the gifts are ready for pick up. Please bear with us as we try to meet everyone’s needs. Thank you once again from Operation Blue Santa.
