WHAT WE DO
Lago Vista Blue Santa was launched in 1989 to ensure children in need received at least three presents for Christmas. For over thirty years, Lago Vista Blue Santa has helped provide Christmas cheer to thousands of children, seniors, and families in need during the holidays. Then, as now, the organization is operated by a nine member board in association with the Lago Vista Police Department. In 2019 we delivered over 650 presents!
2020 has been a uniquely exhausting year on many levels and for many reasons, not the least of which is the economic hardship imposed by job losses and business closures resulting from the wretched COVID mess. Many at-risk families already on the edge were pushed over the economic cliff when the breadwinner suddenly lost their job through no fault of their own. The loss of employment was often compounded by the subsequent loss of job-based health care resulting in many sick people not receiving necessary medical attention.
We know, and fully expect a dramatic increase in needy children, seniors, and families this upcoming holiday season, and implore you to help us help those in need...some in desperate, crushing need. Imagine suddenly becoming financially insolvent because your employer was forced to close their business resulting in your inability to make your rent or mortgage...or feed your family...or put gas in the car...all because COVID shut you down! Just imagine the howling terror of knowing you and your family will be homeless in a matter of weeks with absolutely no solution in sight!
Please consider your blessings and good fortune and assist Lago Vista Blue Santa in our quest to provide all that we can, and whatever we can to those in need this upcoming holiday season. Thank you in advance.
