Austin Police Operation Blue Santa is a 501(c)(3) – non-profit, community based corporation, organized by the Austin Police Department, with support from the Austin Fire Department, Austin Energy, Austin Water Utilities and Texas National Guard. Each year we provide each family we serve with a full holiday meal and wrapped Christmas gifts for each child under age 14. Our service to citizens of Austin began back in 1972 serving about 20 families, this year we served over 4,500 families. This is only possible because of the goodwill and big hearts of Austin’s citizens, businesses, and civic groups that support us each year.

 

Thank you Austin for another great Blue Santa Holiday Season!

Also a big thanks to our sponsors for making it all possible.
