Sgt. Anders’ Cops for Tots Toy & Holiday Meal Drive

The 10th Annual Cops for Tots Toy & Holiday Meal Drive has begun. Over the previous years, many in need have prospered as a result of this program and your generosity. We hope to maintain your support this year!

Toy Drive

Once again, we’re teamed up with Crossroads Church here in Aransas Pass. Please consider donating an unwrapped toy at the police department or by visiting Crossroads Church during one of their services. We are now accepting toy donations. We seek new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls, from toddlers to teens. We often see fewer toys for the teens, so please keep that in mind when shopping.

We have a donation box set up inside the police department lobby (600 Cleveland Blvd, next to City Hall) or at the Crossroads Church (417 N. Houston Street).

If you would like to receive toys for your family, please complete the attached application and submit it in the form below. Applications must be complete and properly submitted in order to be considered.

Sgt. Anders Holiday Meal Drive

We are now accepting monetary donations or gift cards for H-E-B for this event. All donations shall be made in person at the Aransas Pass PD or by mail. You will receive a receipt for your contribution. Thank you!

If you or someone you know is in need of a holiday meal package this December, please use the form to the right to submit their information. We will work to provide holiday meal packages for as many residents as we are able this Christmas season.


APPD Tree Ornament

We have a limited supply of our Christmas tree ornaments on sale. Purchase yours here at the police department.

The cost is $12 per ornament. Half of the money collected will go to our Holiday Fund that helps pay for either toys for children or holiday meals for our community’s needy. The other half of the cost goes into the purchase of the ornament.

Get yours today, while supplies last!

Coat & Blanket Drive

This year, we’ve teamed up with Harbor Hospice out of Rockport, Texas. The goal is to collect new or gently used (clean) jackets and blankets for those in need.

If you’d like to contribute, please drop off your donated items at our police department in the provided dropbox in our lobby. Thank you, AP!
