AUSTIN (KXAN) — Dozens of volunteer’s cars are lined up outside the Austin Police Department South Substation Saturday morning to help deliver thousands of gifts to children across Austin for Operation Blue Santa.
Gifts will be delivered to 15,000 kids across the city.
Last year there were not enough volunteers, and it took twice the time to deliver all of the gifts leaving many families wondering if they would be getting their gifts.
Volunteers are needed starting at 8 a.m. to deliver boxes of food and toys to each sponsored family. Deliver day is not over until each gift has been delivered.
KXAN’s own Amanda Dugan was one of the volunteers for Operation Blue Santa.
Volunteers can still help deliver holiday cheers and participate by going to one of the following locations:
Operation Blue Santa warehouse
APD North Substation
APD East Substation
APD South Substation
