American Legion Post 560 in Garden Oaks is collecting donated toys as part of the Houston Blue Santa program, in which officers from the Houston Police Department deliver holiday gifts to children and families in need.
New, unwrapped toys for children age 14 and younger can be dropped off in the Blue Santa toy depot box at the local American Legion post, located at 3720 Alba Rd., from noon-7 p.m. every Thursday through Sunday until Dec. 12. Toys will be collected that day by HPD.
The Houston Blue Santa program started in 1984. For more information, visit houstonbluesanta.org.
