Toy donations may be delivered to the San Marcos Police Department at 2300 SouthInterstate 35; Embassy Suites San Marcos at 1001 East McCarty Lane; or San Marcos Toyota at 5101 Interstate 35 South. Monetary donations will also be accepted by the San Marcos Police Department.

Volunteers are needed to sort and wrap toys on Wednesday, Dec. 19. The sorting and wrapping will take place from 10 a.m. to  9 p.m. at the City Park Rec Hall, 170 Charles Austin Drive.

The Blue Santa program started in 1972 when police officers in uniform solicited or purchased toys to deliver to less fortunate children in the community. It has since that time partnered with various community organizations and delivered hundreds of toys brightening the holidays of local children.
