50th Anniversary Badge with blue Santa hatOperation Blue Santa

Operation Blue Santa collects toys and donations every year that are distributed by the Optimist Club and the Wheat Ridge Police Department during the holidays to families in need. 

This year WRPD's Blue Santa, aka Jeffcom 911 Communications Manager Chris Garramone, and his “elves” will be collecting donations at the Walmart at Lakeside, 5957 W 44th Ave., on Saturday, Nov. 30 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. WRPD, Lakeside Police and the Optimists hope to fill patrol cars to the brim with toys and gifts. They will be on hand for pictures with children and to visit with them about their wish lists.

In addition to new toys, monetary donations will be collected and used to purchase gift cards for children’s clothing and food. Throughout the year, police officers are in contact with families who might need a little help during the holidays, especially those with young children and teens. The Optimist Club collects those names and addresses for gift delivery that takes place on Saturday, Dec. 14. Volunteers are encouraged to come out and members of the Optimist Club for gift wrapping at Wheat Ridge City Hall on Dec. 13 from 4 - 6:30 p.m.
