SHPD Santa Blue ready to roll


SHPD will be offering a Kids Five-Point STAR Christmas tree this year.

Do you know of anyone with children who might need a little help this Christmas season?

We are accepting gift request applications starting Nov. 1 and through Dec.3. Forms can be picked up at the Police Department or can be e-mailed.

The parent or guardian will be notified and wrapped presents will be delivered to the child’s home the week of Christmas by police officers and our very own Santa Blue in a police vehicle.

Please encourage anyone you know who needs help to apply.

Participating children must live in and be actively enrolled in the Sweet Home School District, and live with the parent/guardian/person completing the application.

Only one request form per address will be accepted.

Our focus will be to serve children ages 13 – 17 (but we do take younger children’s names too).

We do coordinate names with Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District, so we are not doubling up on families.

If you would like to take a STAR off our tree and shop for a local child, our tree will be set up in the SHPD lobby starting Nov. 26. Gifts need to be purchased, wrapped and returned by Dec. 17.

Thanks for your help…
