Austin Police Operation Blue Santa Needs Your Help to Prepare This Season!

The Austin Police Department (APD) Operation Blue Santa is seeking volunteers to help in three different categories for this upcoming holiday season:
I. Volunteer with Blue Santa
We are seeking individuals and small groups of no more than 25 to work in the Blue Santa warehouse. This means sorting toys by age and gender, wrapping gifts and building boxes with gifts. We are adding more shifts depending on the need; so, keep checking back to Volunteer | Blue Santa. Registration is done on a first-come, first-served basis. We welcome businesses too. Have your company's employees volunteer together!

Volunteer spots are available right now! Volunteer | Blue Santa

II. Participate in the Blue Santa Toy Drive
As a business, you can serve as a Blue Santa toy drop-off point. Get creative and design a toy collection bin. Once you complete your toy drive, drop off the toys at the nearest fire station or at the Blue Santa warehouse.

If you are an individual, purchase one or more toys and donate them at the nearest Austin Fire Station or business participating in the toy drive.
For more information, visit: Toy Drive | Blue Santa

III. Participate on Delivery Day
Mark your calendar for December 18, 2021. Austin Police Operation Blue Santa Delivery Day begins at 8 a.m. and goes until all presents have been delivered - approximately 1 p.m. All are welcome to deliver, but we'd like to get a head count to gauge interest and plan activities. With this in mind, please tell us if you plan to attend and the number of people in your group. Click the link below to provide this information:
