Using Blue Santa Hats To Aid Your Local Police Department

On Christmas Eve 1976 San Antonio police officer Tom Preston along with his fellow officers started a tradition. Operation Blue Santa. Preston knew of several families who could not afford toys under their tree and with his own earnings, he and his colleagues purchased and distributed toys to underprivileged children in the San Antonio community. Preston’s project quickly drew interest from more police officers- one suggesting that Preston dress up as Santa himself. A blue Santa Claus outfit was tailored for Preston and San Antonio’s Blue Santa was born. Operation Blue Santa was officially sanctioned and since then the SAPD has served over 8000 families each year. As one might predict several local businesses began participating in the program. Here’s how your business can join the cause using blue Santa hats.
