About Operation Blue Santa
Round Rock Operation Blue Santa is a non-profit organization that was established in 1978 by volunteers and employees of the Round Rock Police, Fire, and Parks and Recreation Departments. Since 1978 Operation Blue Santa has delivered toys and food to families in need. In the first year, fewer than twenty families were served. Every year the number of families served has grown. Currently over 1,600 individuals are served. Operation Blue Santa is supported entirely by the community (schools, individuals, and businesses) in the form of donations. Operation Blue Santa's mission is to provide assistance to Round Rock families during Christmas. Together we have seen many lives changed for the better and celebrated the magic of the holiday season.
