Redding Police have once again launched Operation Blue Santa. Their goal is to provide toys, gifts, gift cards and holiday meals for families in need. The mission is supported by donations from Redding residents and businesses. Redding Police then anonymously provide the items to families in need during the holiday season. Redding Social Services identifies the families who could benefit from the program. Redding Police say tax deductible contributions can be sent to the Department on Hill Road for the Redding Police Fund, care of Blue Santa.
