Blue Christmas Toy Drive

This year marks the 7th Annual San Jose Police Officers' Association's Blue Christmas Toy Drive! Serving the community is an essential tenet of our profession and that service can be demonstrated in many ways. This Police Department has always stepped up to help community members in great need, especially when children are involved. There are so many children who wouldn’t receive a gift during the holiday season if it wasn’t for the generosity of all of you.

Our last Blue Christmas resulted in the collection and distribution of over 600 toys to truly deserving children. The level of donations from you and your families was amazing and inspiring. We are asking again for that level of commitment to this admirable cause. To be as successful as before, we will need everybody to participate! The entire Board of Directors wants to thank you ahead of time for making Christmas Day a magical time for so many families in the community.

This toy drive cannot be a success on such a large scale without the action of all of our members. Please consider purchasing a $10-$20 new toy and then placing the unwrapped toy into one of the red, 55-gallon barrels at one of the locations listed below. Gift Cards are also wonderfully encouraged and accepted for our teens in need. The Board of Directors, along with members of the Department, will then deliver the toys and gift cards to the families.

Also, if you know of a specific family through your calls for service or investigations that involves a child or children that have a great need for a Christmas toy, please email the SJPOA staff with the name and address of that family at:

We have placed the red, 55-gallon barrels at the following locations:

  • San Jose Police Officers' Association: Office lobby, Day Room, Football Watch Party, Membership Meeting, Santa at the POA, Holiday Open House

  • San Jose Police Department PAB - BOI 3rd floor

  • San Jose Police Department PAC - Southwest Elevator Lobby Entrance

  • San Jose Police Department Substation

The last day the red, 55-gallon barrels will be out is Wednesday, December 20th.

Please join us in showcasing yet another example of our considerate service as police officers and making this holiday season memorable for the children of our community!

Thank you,

SJPOA Board of Directors
