BLUE SANTA PROGRAM
In 1976, the Blue Santa Program was created to help bring holiday happiness to families and children throughout San Antonio. Blue Santa is all about bringing hope and joy to families that struggle to make ends meet during the toughest times of the year, the holidays.
Police officers are in a unique position to see the struggles families endure throughout the year, so we began partnering with local businesses and organizations and volunteers to collect food, clothes toys, and monetary donations to assist thousands of families in our city. A simple gift can change a life, and BlueSanta is our way of saying, "we care."
During the month of December, San Antonio police officers, volunteers, and Blue Santa, work very hard to deliver all the needed items to these underprivileged children and their families. All money raised from SAPOA's biggest events, the Sporting Clay Shoot and Blue Santa Golf Tournament, goes to Blue Cares to fund our Blue Santa project.
Police officers are here to serve. Sometimes that means giving a little happiness to children whose families may be in tough financial circumstances.

Volunteers are the most important assets to any non-profit program. We appreciate any help that is offered.
The goal of Project CJ is to ensure children have enough healthy snacks and food options during their time away from school and on weekends.
