Santa Cops

Santa Cops A non-profit organization that since 1985 has delivered Christmas to underprivileged families. The Santa Cop Program is a 30 plus year community effort by the Arlington Police Association Foundation and Arlington Police Department in conjunction with the Arlington Independent School District to provide a memorable Christmas for children in Arlington.

The program has evolved from police officers providing Christmas trees, food and gifts to families in their beat to providing toys and supplies for over 400 families and more than 1200 children in 2015. The Santa Cop Program currently identifies needy families through the social workers and counselors at targeted AISD elementary schools. A party is provided for these families at the Arlington Conv

Thank you Elliott. I miss you. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

Tin Man wants to thank you for the donations for his Santa Cops toy drive!

We still have two weeks to bring in more toys for kids in our community, so if you’re interested in donating, check out the link below:

https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1UK41KVYTG9PL?ref_=wl_share

Each of the toys and books on the list are gifts that Elliott would be happy to give to another child - he picked most of the items out himself!

(Although, after making this video, he pointed out that we need to add some Star Wars and Imaginext stuff to the list.)

**The deadline to purchase is Sunday, December 6th** – This turnaround ensures that the Arlington Police Department has plenty of time to receive, organize, wrap, and deliver the gifts to the families.

If you won’t be purchasing from this list, please consider sharing this post or donating to one of your own local toy drive programs.

And if you wish to do something specifically for Tin Man himself - he still loves checking the mail and is always excited to receive a card.

Thank you Tim Man Tough. The children will be so excited to see gifts under their trees.

A lot of you have already reached out asking what you can do for our family for Christmas, so we wanted to get this out there for anyone else who wants to brighten someone else’s holiday season.

We all know 2020 has been rough.

There has been so much sadness and division and loss.

Now, more than ever, it is our wish to help give gifts to children and families who are in need of a boost this year.

So,like last year, we will be partnering with the Santa Cops program by hosting a toy/book drive!

A party is provided for these families at the Arlington Convention Center where refreshments, good cheer, gifts, and even Santa is on hand to provide for a festive time. Groupings of schools are provided their very own party time so that each party is specialized for that group.
