Lawrence Police Blue Santa
HELP US MAKE AN IMPACT
Help your neighbor in need. Every dollar counts.
how it all started
The Blue Santa Program was organized in 2011 by the men and women of the Lawrence, Kansas Police Department to assist our neighbors living within the city limits of Lawrence, Kansas.
Every money donated contributes to the emergent needs of the community when officers encounter a critical need.

JM Smucker is a huge supporter of Blue Santa every year. We thank them for their continued generosity year after year.
We give back to the community with our own time as well. In May, 2022, we made May Day flower baskets for the elderly and delivered them to retirement communities in Lawrence.
