blue & redsanta project
The Blue & Red Santa project was created to give back to the community that is served by the Culpeper Police Department and Culpeper Volunteer Fire Department.
This is the fifth year for this program, the program has been extremely successful and we are continuing to grow. This yer more than ever these families need our help. Other organizations are unable to participate this year due to the inability to have any fundraising events. We are the only group providing help this Christmas. Several local businesses, civil groups and restaurants donate money and food to make this project successful.
This project works closely with the department of social services. This year will be slightly different, we will be shopping with the local police officers and firefighters for gifts for the selected family members and they will pick up their gifts at a designated area. This project is a community effort to support local families celebrate their holidays. we will be purchasing items based on needs of the children with an emphasis on clothing. This project cannot be accomplished without the assistance of the community. Each participating child will get an allotted amount that we will be purchasing based on their needs. The amount depends on the amount of money that is raised. The Culpeper Wal-Mart is also partnering with us, by giving an additional 10% off purchases for these children. We are increasing our goal to 150 children this year. Additionally, we have partnered with the Culpeper Eagles Club and they will be furnishing an assortment of Hygiene products in addition to their gifts.
