Every holiday season, the Blue Santa program collects non-perishable food, gifts and hygiene products for disabled, shut-in and elderly community members who need a little extra holiday cheer. Blue Santa is sponsored by the Estes Park Police Department Auxiliary. It is anticipated that Blue Santa will assist nearly 100 people this year, and it is not too late to nominate someone in need of assistance. To nominate a disabled, shut-in or elderly community member in need, please contact Captain Corey Pass at the Estes Park Police Department, at 970-577-3828 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or complete the form below. Members of the Blue Santa team also visit residents of Prospect Park and Good Samaritan Society, visiting with seniors and singing carols.

Monetary donations may be dropped off at the Estes Park Police Department, located at 170 MacGregor Ave., or mailed to Blue Santa Program, c/o Estes Park Police Auxiliary, P.O.
