The Center Police Department's Blue Santa program is getting ready to load
the sleigh and needs your help. Blue Santa is asking for donations of new
toys, books, or clothes for all ages of boys and girls. Monetary donations
are also welcomed.
To get things started there will be a donation box located at the Center
Police Dept in the lobby. For every toy that is donated, you will be entered
into a drawing for an 32 GB IPAD computer donated by Walmart.
Second, there will be a raffle sale for a Mossberg 510, 410 youth model. Tickets will be
$20 each, and only 200 tickets will be sold. Sale of these raffle tickets
will enable Blue Santa to purchase more gifts to meet the needs of the
children on our list. You can purchase tickets from the Center Police Dept
Officers, Dispatchers, and Shelby County Today. These drawings will be held
on Monday, December 18th.
Blue Santa is also proud to announce they are being sponsored by Lasting
Impressions and Mathews Real Estate. On November 28th they will be hosting,
along with several other businesses - Holiday on Foster. This event will
start at 5:30 and will have several vendors. At Lasting Impressions Santa

gifts, Santa will be asking for toy donations for Blue Santa. There will
also be a Center Police Department officer for kids to meet and greet who
will have a Patrol unit ready for kids to see the lights and here the
