Nov. 30 is deadline for submitting children's names for Blue Santa program
An important deadline is 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.
Anyone knowing of any child in Shelby County that may not have any Santa this Christmas, please fill out the Blue Santa form. One for each child and turn back into the Center Police Department Dispatch.
This form will need to be returned to the PD no later than Nov. 30. Any form turned in after the due date will NOT be accepted. This ensures organizers plenty of time to get all the toys they will need. 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.
Items for boys and girls of all ages will be needed, from infant to 15 years old. The entire Blue Santa team would like to thank everyone for their generous donation of the Blue Santa program.
With these donations and others like them, the Blue Santa program 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 child's Christmas blessed this year.
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.
