Blue Santa events kicking off in Georgetown

The Georgetown Police Department's Blue Santa program provides boxes of toys to qualified families who live within the city limits.

Families may apply at the Georgetown Police Department or through their children's schools.

Blue Santa posts donation event on its website, https://bluesanta.georgetown.org. The following events will take place this year.

During the Dec. 7 Christmas Stroll, Blue Santa volunteers will push blue shopping carts to collect donations of new, unwrapped toys during the parade. Donations may also be dropped off at All Things Kids, 703 S. Main St., before or after the parade.

All Things Kids will also host a raffle drawing Dec. 23 for prizes including a Radio Flyer wagon filled with toys. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5, but if a toy is dropped off for Blue Santa, All Things Kids will cover the cost of the raffle tickets.
