Blue Santa

Operation Blue Santa is a program that assists children from disadvantaged families in the Redding area during the Christmas season. Through donations, a complete Christmas package is delivered by Santa and McGruff The Crime Dog! They are escorted through the city and to the doorstep of each home by personnel, including officers, chaplains and volunteers. Stockings with candy and stuffed toys are also passed out to any children seen along our route. Santa also makes a stop at Mercy Medical Center's Pediatric Unit and One Safe Place.
