Winter Coat, Jacket, and Sweatshirt/Hoodie Drive
For those affected by Hurricane Harvey
As the colder temperatures approach, our Harvey friends will
be in need of new/gently used winter coats, jackets,
and sweatshirts for both the adults and children.
Blue Santa helps needy families by providing new, unwrapped toys for children and infants to 12 years old, who are referred and accepted into the program. This event is in collaboration with the Friendswood Police Department.
Santa In The Park:
Friendswood suffered tremendous losses during Harvey. We were shaken to our core with the amount of flooding that occurred in homes, businesses, and public facilities. But we rallied and came together as a community to do what needed to be done to get us back to a somewhat state of “normalcy”. The City of Friendswood and Keep Friendswood Beautiful completely understand that replacement resources have been heavily tapped and available funds are needed to help people recover. So asking for donations and sponsorship money for Santa in the Park 2017 is an extremely difficult task for us this year. However, the event has brought so much joy to citizens in years past that we are moving forward with the event. On December 9, 2017, Santa in the Park will again provide a wonderful holiday experience for Friendswood. We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary of the event and, as in previous years, your donations and sponsorships are integral components of our success. Please do what you can to help with making Santa in the Park a reality this year. Our community needs this event as we move forward with rebuilding our community and providing the best possible holiday festival for a suffering community.
The City of Friendswood and the Keep Friendswood Beautiful Board are soliciting donations for 10th Annual Santa in the Park Christmas Celebration. This year the event will offer heart-pounding entertainment, photos with Santa, Concert in the Park, action packed carnival rides, a Holiday Market and ending the evening with the lighting of a 20 foot tall decorated Christmas tree provided by our title sponsor, HomeTown Bank followed by a state of the art Fireworks extravaganza. The 10th annual Santa in the Park promises to be the most spectacular event of the year bringing in thousands in attendance.
