Reach out to help your community -- donate to Blue Santa Nov. 6 - Dec. 4 Donate at locations across town or at the Nov. 18 Tree Lighting Ceremony Every holiday season, the Blue Santa program collects non-perishable food, gifts and hygiene products for disabled, shut-in and elderly community members that need a little extra holiday cheer. Blue Santa is sponsored by the Estes Park Police Department Auxiliary. It is anticipated that Blue Santa will assist nearly 100 people this year, and it’s not too late to nominate someone in need of assistance. To nominate a disabled, shut-in or elderly community member in need, please contact Captain Corey Pass at 970-577-3828 or email@example.com. Community members may also donate to Blue Santa by visiting the Police Auxiliary at the Tree Lighting Ceremony Saturday, Nov. 19 from 4 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at the George Hix Riverside Plaza downtown. The Auxiliary asks everyone who attends the Tree Lighting Ceremony to bring at least one non-perishable food item or provide a cash donation to support the cause. Blue Santa donations will also be accepted Nov. 6 - Dec. 4 at the following locations: The Estes Park Senior Center, The Estes Park Visitor Center, Bank of Colorado, The Country Market in National Park Village, Estes Valley Library, Med X, Rocky Mountain Health Club, Rocky Mountain National Park, Bank of Estes Park (Park Lane and St. Vrain Center), Premier Members Credit Union, Safeway, Estes Park Medical Center, U.S. Bank, Rambo’s Liquor, Animal Medical Center, Rocky Mountain Discount Liquor, Mountain Dew Liquor, Spur 66 Liquor Store, Good Samaritan Society – Estes Park Village and Estes Park Town Hall. More locations will be added, and many locations will collect monetary donations that allow the Police Auxiliary to purchase food and gifts to supplement donated items. Every penny donated will be used to fund items for Blue Santa recipients. Donations will be delivered Dec. 9 to all Blue Santa recipients.
