The Blue Santa Program

The Blue Santa Program is a non-profit outreach program that focuses on giving gift cards to needy children each year during the holidays. Each year the Police provide children that might not have Christmas with gift cards to WalMart.

By purchasing a ticket, you are making a donation to the Blue Santa program. Tickets are non-refundable. This is a rain, snow or shine event.

“It’s amazing to watch the children’s excitement as they pick out Christmas presents. It’s extremely humbling to see that some select presents for their family and sometimes food and other necessities,” said Chuck Boyce, Community Resource Officer with Tyler’s Police Department.

“The Blue Santa shopping trip is truly the highlight of my Christmas every year.”

“Our service to children began back in 2009, serving families in need during the holiday season. With our Blue Santa program, area police officers nominate children that are underprivileged, child victims, and/or are witnesses to crimes that they meet in the community to take Christmas shopping with police officers.”
