While Santa Claus is most obviously known as the jolly man in the red suit, once a year in Kilgore, he dons a blue suit for Kilgore Police Officers Association’s annual Operation Blue Santa.
With help from Kilgore Police officers, children will get to search for exactly what they want on a special shopping spree for them.
The children have not yet been selected, but people can donate to help make the day possible.
Anyone looking to make a monetary donation can contact Det. Tim Dukes, Det. John Rowe or Det. Steve Goodson at the Kilgore Police Department.
All toy donations will be given to KPD to be included in the toys they will donate to the Kilgore Lions Club for their annual Christmas project.
