holiday festivitiesAnnual Holiday Festivities – We continue in our annual tradition of spreading holiday cheer. Our goal is to reach as many people as possible. Just like the previous years, our efforts are only possible through the very generous donations from our able followers. Thank you, everyone, for your contributions and our many years of success spreading holiday happiness!


Sgt. Anders’ Holiday Family Meal Baskets

holiday-spirit Each year, AP officers deliver holiday meal baskets to families in need. The HEB meal kits come complete with sides and a dessert and are ready to be cooked and served, upon delivery. They’re capable of feeding a family of 6.

This program is open to residents of Aransas Pass. If you or a family you know could benefit from this event, sign up below.

Sgt. Anders’ Cops for Tots Toy Drive

The 8th Annual Cops for Tots Toy Drive is underway. Over the previous years, many in need have prospered as a result of this event and your generosity. We hope we still have your support!

This year we have teamed up with the Crossroads Church right here in Aransas Pass. If you want to donate an unwrapped toy, please do so in person at the police department or by visiting the Crossroads Church. Today, we begin accepting toy donations. We’re seeking new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls, young and into their teens.

If you’d like to donate, please do so in person at the Aransas Pass Police Department (600 Cleveland Blvd, next to City Hall) or at the Crossroads Church (417 N. Houston Street). To signup to receive toys this year, please email Stephanie below.

The History on Sgt. Anders' Events

Sgt. Dennis Anders, who recently passed away, began the Cops for Tots Car Show toy drive and the Holiday Food Basket events years ago. We strive to keep up with his annual tradition by continuing these charitable events in his memory. All monetary donations purposed for the Sgt. Anders’ events will be used for holiday meal kits. The more we receive, the more families we can feed. Thank you for your support!


Shop with a Cop

shopcopFS This Christmas season marks the fifth year the “Shop with a Cop” program comes to Aransas Pass. However, funding is somewhat short so your contributions for this program would be greatly appreciated!

The date for this event is December 10th and students are actively being selected through their school. If you’d like your elementary student to be considered, please reach out to your school counselor.

Through the program, selected students will shop with area law enforcement. The event takes place at the Walmart located in Aransas Pass. Afterward, law enforcement and students will enjoy lunch together.

“Shop with a Cop” would not be possible without your kind donations. And, this year more than any before, your donations are definitely needed. Please contribute, if you are blessed and able.

We appreciate YOUR support. Without it, these events wouldn’t be possible.
Happy Holidays, AP!
