Operation Blue Santa is a non-profit, community driven corporation based out of Austin, TX. It is governed by a board of directors that is staffed entirely from volunteers and the Austin Police Department. Austin Police Operation Blue Santa began in 1972 when two officers realized that there was a desperate need for families that didn’t have the means to provide food and gifts for needy families around Christmas. It started by only providing 20 families and has grown to support more than 5000 families this year. This is only possible due to the goodwill and grace of Austin’s citizens, businesses and civic groups. One more organization joining the contributors is the US Money Reserve by way of a GoFundMe sponsorship. With so many contributors this year it is expected to be one of the most successful years on hand.
When you hear “US Money Reserve” you automatically think gold coins and precious metals. That is not the case when it comes to the US Money Reserve. Each year the US Money Reserve contributes to more than 70 non-profit organizations around the country and quite a few in Texas. Some of these causes include Austin Pets Alive, Austin Zoo, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Austin Children Shelter, Autism Society of Greater Austin, Bikes for Kids, Big Brother Big Sisters of Central Texas and many, many more. Their contributions have helped so many across our great land. Below are some links to learn more about the US Money Reserve and their many contributions.
