Chevron/ Phillips Chemical Company made a $500 donation to the Orange County Sheriffs Office Blue Santa program Thursday.  

Blue Santa is a program that provides holiday gifts for underprivileged children in Orange County.  The program, in existence for over twenty-five years, is organized by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and entirely supported by donations from the local community.  Toy donation collection boxes will be placed around the community. A list of donation centers will be available later in the month.

Border St. in Orange, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Applications are available at the Sheriff’s Office.  

The applicant should keep a copy of the application along with copies of the required documents to take to the VFW on Highway 87 for gift distribution, which is scheduled for Dec. 12. 

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS:  Each parent’s driver’s license or ID, birth certificate, and social security card for each child, and a current utility bill.
