According to Amy Griggs, Community Liaison for the Blue Santa Toy Drive, it’s almost time for the Blue Santa campaign to start. You can begin looking for the Blue Santa barrels to appear around Sulphur Springs retail areas in late October. That’s when the annual Toy Drive begins in earnest, and your help is needed. During the past several years, Blue Santa has stepped up to assist with increasing needs in the Hopkins County/Sulphur Springs community. Plan to help Blue Santa make Christmas brighter for local children by purchasing toys at local retailers and dropping them in the blue barrels in October. Then, as you celebrate Thanksgiving, remember those less fortunate by purchasing and dropping toys in the barrels. Then on December 3 and 4. attend the special Blue Santa Donation Days on the Lowe’s parking lot. Bring money and/or toys and enjoy the brisket lunch fundraiser! Blue Santa 2018 toy distribution will be held mid-December for qualifying local families who are signed up. To sign up for Blue Santa assistance this Christmas, go to CANHelp at 613 Gilmer Street in Sulphur Springs starting October 22, 2018 or phone CANHelp at 903-885-9797.
