Our Outreach Programs
The San Antonio Police Officers Association has always placed community outreach and relationship building as top priorities. Each year the number of those in need of assistance increases, especially with the ongoing public health crisis. Our organization is dedicated to serving as a leader in the community to help families receive much-needed resources and support. We are able to provide these resources by the charitable donations Blue Cares receives each year from generous sponsors.
Each year the number of those who need assistance increases and Blue Cares wants to be on the front line of getting our citizens the help that they need. Our amazing outreach programs would not be possible without your donations and those of our Blue Cares Sponsors.
Project C J
Project CJ helps meet the nutritional needs of children by providing weekly home food packages for Title-One elementary schools. In addition to this program, Blue Cares also organizes and sponsors other projects throughout the year through the incredible support we receive from sponsors like L3 Harris/Dailey-Wells. Our organization works closely with the San Antonio Food Bank to ensure every child has access to healthy snacks and meals during their time away from school and on the weekends.
Blue Santa Program
SAPOA Blue Santa Program brings joy to children during the holidays. Blue Santa gives toys, food, clothes, and in-kind donations to children from low-income families. Please visit our website in November for more information on how you or your organization can donate.
