Blue Santa

The holiday season has officially begun for the Galveston Police Department Blue Santa program! This year, there have been a few changes in our process. This year participants will be required to provide some form of identification as well as some form of documentation that provides information that stated that the children you desire to receive toys for, reside within your household. We also ask that any household that intends to participate in any other local community, faith based organization, church or school program receiving toys should consider if the need for additional toys through the Blue Santa program is necessary. 

Our attempt is to support the children within the City of Galveston by providing smiles through the giving of toys! Let’s remember, our children are worth smiling for!! In order to provide gifts, we’re asking for donations for toys and gift cards. To donate, please contact Officer J. Harris at 409-526-9750 or

See the list below about documentation that will be accepted, as well as the dates and times that participants will be able to apply for toy assistance.

Happy Holidays!
