Due to the current global coronavirus pandemic, the Board of Directors of the Colorado County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Santa Program sadly announces that the 2020 Deputy Santa event has been canceled. Please know that this decision was an exceedingly difficult one. And, while we are still as dedicated as ever to serving the underprivileged children of Colorado County, the safety of our volunteers and families we serve must come first.
We would like to thank each and every one of you for supporting the Deputy Santa Program since our inception in 1997. Together, we provided Christmas gifts to over 350 children in 2019. We look forward to continuing our mission in making a difference in the lives of our children once it is safe to do so. Though we will not be accepting toy or wrapping paper donations this year, individuals, organizations, and businesses interested in making monetary donations may make your donation to the Deputy Santa Account at Columbus State Bank. Alternatively, you may contact Sgt. Inv. Jeff Argo at the Colorado County Sheriff’s Office at 979-732-2388, ext. 238.
Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We are looking forward to fulfilling our mission and serving our local children once again in the future. In the meantime, please stay safe.
