Temple PD Brings Back Operation Blue Santa

Photo by Nathan Morgan

TEMPLE – It is well known that no one calls 911 to just say hello. In the day to day activities of police officers, they often encounter children whose conditions are tragic. Unfortunately many of these children come from homes that must choose between gifts or basic survival needs. The Temple Police Department believes this is heartbreaking, and that all children deserve to open a gift on Christmas morning. Therefore the Temple Police Department will, for the first time in almost 15 years, accept donations for Operation Blue Santa.

Anyone wishing to make a donation is asked to drop off a new unwrapped toy in the lobby of the Temple Police Department, located at 209 E. Avenue A, starting Friday November 23, 2012.

The gifts collected will be delivered to underprivileged children within the City of Temple who may not have the opportunity to receive presents this year.

The Department is currently working with various social service agencies to assist in identifying appropriate candidates for participation in the program.

To sponsor or volunteer please call Temple Police Administration at 254-298-5536.
