2022 Blue Santa by the Numbers

In 2022, we hosted 9 in-person toy distribution events instead of one drive-through pick up for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. Our goal of making the Blue Santa Program more accessible to the people we serve came to fruition through the support and partnership of several San Antonio City Council Members including District 3 Councilwoman Phyllis Viagran, District 4 Councilwoman Dr. Adriana Rocha Garcia, District 6 Councilwoman Melissa Cabello Havrda, and District 8 Councilman Manny Pelaez.

In addition, Blue Santa increased the number of community nonprofits, churches, agencies, and organizations we assisted to 19 up from 16 served in 2021.
