Austin Police Department’s Operation Blue Santa Helps Over 3,500 Families

Operation Blue Santa was started back in 1972 by officers from the Austin Police department and has grown into a volunteer charitable organization that is serving over 3500 families this year with holiday presents. Saturday morning was the delivery date when these families received presents and a turkey for the holidays. Police Chief Art Acevedo is joined by Blue Santa Guy Benson as they present a boxful of gifts to Stephanie Estrada and her children in southeast Austin. She was surprised when she answered the door with one of her daughters Selena Perez, 7.
