Blue Santa

Blue Santa was created in 2007 by a handful of East Texas Fraternal Order of Police officers taking a few children the officers had met on calls Christmas shopping in Tyler, TX. Now Blue Santa has grown! Every year hundreds of police officers in the East Texas area take hundreds of children Christmas shopping. Most of these children are victims or witnesses of crimes. The last time a child comes into contact with an officer should not be remembered as the worst day of that child’s life.

  • Officers from all over the East Texas area nominate children throughout the year that they come into contact with on calls.
  • Children nominated by officers are invited to a local Walmart on a predetermined day to receive $100 and to go Christmas shopping with an officer.
  • If you would like to donate to sponsor a child for Blue Santa please donate online or attend one of our several events that helps to fund Blue Santa!
  • This event is sponsored by the East Texas Regional Fraternal Order of Police every year.

If you are a local police officer and would like to nominate a child for this year’s event, please fill out the form below. Remember to please provide all of the information so we can contact the parent /guardian of the child(ren) and invite them. If you would like to be the one to shop with the child please indicate that so you can be placed with the child during the event.

Unfortunately, the FOP has a limit to how many children we can accommodate for this event based on yearly donations and the number of officers available. Please submit any nominations for the event by December 1st of the year. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
