The Ingram Police Benevolent Foundation wants to assure citizens that all donations, gifts, etc… were distributed to families involved with The Blue Santa Program. Organizers also want to express how grateful they are for the continued show of community support, even during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
New Ingram Police Chief Carol Twiss says she is excited to carry on with the tradition next year with her new staff. Twiss said, “The Ingram Police Dept. will participate in the program next year. We plan to continue the partnership with the Benevolent Foundation Board and provide services to the citizens of Ingram who need assistance.”
Blue Santa is a community outreach program which helps families during an otherwise stressful time. It provides a positive interaction that raises the spirits of both recipients, donors and police officers, as well as providing clothes and at least one gift for children 13 and younger.
