Operation Blue Santa is returning to Turlock to accept donations for those in need. Turlockers have several opportunities to run into Blue Santa. He’ll be present at the Downtown Festival of Lights, the Christmas Parade and after-school programs.
Blue Santa will also show up to the Turlock Together: Charities Event at Walmart in addition to touring the Turlock community throughout the month of December.
The drive accepts a number of donations for those in need, such as cash, check or gift cards. They also accept unwrapped, new toys—although weapon-type toys are not recommended.
Donations may be dropped off at the Public Safety Facility, located at 244 N. Broadway in Turlock.
