November 17, 2020 (Blue Santa Form) - The Center Police Department's Blue Santa program is getting ready to load the sleigh and needs your help. Blue Santa is asking for donations of new toys, books, or clothes for all ages of boys and girls. Monetary donations are also welcomed.
Mark your calendars for our Toy Drive/Raffle, a 32 in Tv and DVD Player, and other Christmas movie watching goodies will be raffled off. For every person that brings in a gift, will be entered into the drawing. Drawing to be held December 5th, after the Christmas Parade. Unfortunately, due to COVID, at this time, there are no plans for Cookies & Cocoa with Santa. This was a big day for our toy drive, and really makes a bigger need for donations.
Forms are ready for pickup. If you know of any child in Shelby County that may not have any Santa this Christmas, please have their parent/guardian fill out this form. One for each child and turn back into the Center Police Department Dispatch, Shelby County Today, or The Light & Champion. This form will need to be returned to the PD no later than Monday, December 7th, 2020. Any form turned in after the due date will NOT be accepted. This ensures us plenty of time to get all the toys we will need.
Forms or Monetary donations can also be mailed to OPERATION BLUE SANTA at P.O. Box 322, Center, Tx 75935. If you would like to donate new toys, clothing, hygiene items please bring them to the Center Police Dept. Boys and girls of all ages will be needed, infant to 15yrs old. The entire Blue Santa team would like to thank everyone for your generous donation to the Blue Santa program. With your donation and others like yours, we will be able to provide Christmas to many children in Shelby County. Again, thank you, we cannot do it without you! Let Blue Santa help You make a Childs Christmas blessed this year.
