Longview Police Start Operation Blue Santa

    The Christmas season starts early in Longview, as police start a charity program to help needy families. That's thanks to the early start of a program called "Blue Santa." The program was announced today at the Longview Police Department with fanfare, complete with 5 motorcycle reindeer pulling a squad car sleigh. Longview Police officers are collecting toys and donations, as part of the program. They hope to help more than 100 families in the Longview area.

   Members of "Operation Blue Santa" will deliver the toys to families at Christmas. They will also have a "Dunk Santa" fundraiser booth at Allyfest this weekend.
