Blue Santa ProgramBlue Santa Program


In 1976, the Blue Santa Program was created to help bring holiday happiness to families and children throughout San Antonio. Blue Santa is all about bringing hope and joy to families that struggle to make ends meet during the toughest times of the year, the holidays.

Police officers are in a unique position to see the struggles families endure throughout the year. The San Antonio Police Officers Association (SAPOA) recognized these difficulties and began partnering with community companies and volunteers to collect food, clothes, toys, and monetary donations to assist thousands of families in our city.

A simple gift can change a life. Blue Santa is SAPOA’s way of saying to the community…we care and we are here to protect you and your family!

During the month of December, San Antonio police officers, volunteers, and our Blue Santa, work very hard to deliver all the needed items to these underprivileged children and their families. All money raised from our three biggest events, the Sporting Clay Shoot, and Blue Santa Golf Tournament, goes to the SAPOA Outreach program to fund our Blue Santa project.

Police officers are here to protect the community. Sometimes that means protecting their happiness by showing our children that their community cares about them and will not leave them behind.
