The San Marcos Police Blue Santa program has been delivering toys to children who might not otherwise have Christmas gifts in San Marcos, since 1972. Last year Blue Santa provided gift for nearly 400 families and 1,400 children.
How to Help
You can help make Christmas a little brighter this year for our local children by offering support.
San Marcos Police Department Blue Santa Toy Drive
The San Marcos Police Department is encouraging the community to get into the holiday spirit by contributing to the Blue Santa Program.
The department will accept monetary donations and new unwrapped toys (please no stuffed animals) through December 14, 2017 for its annual Blue Santa toy drive. Donations and toys may be delivered to the San Marcos Police Department at 2300 S IH-35 in San Marcos.
There will also be barrels distributed for toy collections at Dollar General on Hunter Road at 102 Willow Springs Dr. and at Honda of San Marcos, 4300 IH 35 South.
This year we are excited to partner with the Five Below Stores in Austin at 5207 Brodie Lane, Suite 190 and in New Braunfels at 251 Creekside Crossing.
Donations can be sent to:
San Marcos Police Department
ATTN: Corporal Scott Johnson
2300 IH 35 South
San Marcos, TX 78666
The "Blue Santa" is literally a police officer in uniform, who will give a toy to a less fortunate child in our community. By being involved, we will make sure that each child has a Christmas in San Marcos. Your help is greatly appreciated.
