Deadline coming up for getting submissions for Blue Santa program

Program helps make holiday brigher for children in need

A couple of important deadlines are looming for the Shelby County Blue Santa program, organizers said.

Nov. 30 is the deadline to get names turned in of prospective children needing presents for a brighter Christmas. Nov. 22 is the deadline for having a chance of winning a fundraising raffle.

Amy Lindley, with the organizing Center Police Department, said volunteers are ready to get to work to make the Christmas holidays a little brighter for area children.

The Center Police Department is kicking off the season with a raffle ticket sale for a chance at a Savage Trophy Hunter 6.5 Creedmoor with Nikon Scope. Tickets are $20 each, or 6 for $100. The drawing will be held on Thanksgiving day, Nov. 22.

This year things are going to be done a little differently, with a deadline on returning forms set for Nov. 30,” said Amy Lindley, with the police department. “If you know of any child in Shelby County that may not have any Santa this Christmas, please fill out this form.”

One for each child and turn back into the Center Police Department Dispatch, or Shelby County Today. This form will need to be returned to the police department no later than Thursday, Nov. 30 2018. Any form turned in after the due date will not be accepted.

This ensures us plenty of time to get all the toys we will need,” Lindley said. “Remember, all forms are anonymous.”

Forms or monetary donations can also be mailed to BLUE SANTA at P.O. Box 322 Center, Tx 75935. If you would like to donate new toys, clothing, hygiene items please bring them to the Center Police Dept.

Boys and girls of all ages will be needed, infant to 15 years old. The entire Blue Santa team would like to thank everyone for your generous donation to the Blue Santa program. With your donation and others like yours, we will be able to provide Christmas to many children in Shelby County.

Again thank you, we can not do it without you! Let Blue Santa help You make a Childs Christmas blessed this year.

Thank You, from the Operation Blue Santa Team!
