CUERO - The Cuero Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Service have joined forces to form the first ever Cuero Blue Santa program.
The program is designed to share the spirit of Christmas by collecting toys and delivering them to less fortunate children in Cuero.
The program is seeking monetary donations, as well as commitments of community service hours to assist with sorting and wrapping gifts.
"This is a perfect opportunity for civic groups, youth groups or any person to give back to the community in the spirit of Christmas," said Cuero Police Sgt. Cory Tolbert.
Donor and volunteer certificates of appreciation will be presented to anyone participating.
All toys will be delivered to the children by Blue Santa and members of the sponsoring departments.
