Members of Blue Cares, the San Antonio Police Officers Association’s community outreach program volunteers, gathered March 4 to assemble We Care Kits, part of an ongoing effort by police union members and their families to collect and donate personal care and hygiene products.

The items are packaged and distributed to those in need throughout San Antonio by on-duty SAPD officers and staff, a news release said.

SAPOA representatives said every We Care Kit contains $15 worth of personal care items.

Donations, which help supply the We Care Kit program at four San Antonio Police Department substations, may be dropped off at SAPOA headquarters, 1939 N. Loop 410 E., Ste. 300, or the Blue Cares Office, 6993 Alamo Downs Parkway. Monetary donations can also be made online at
