Spreading the Holiday Spirit

holiday spiritSpreading the Holiday Spirit – This year, like the many before, APPD works to spread the holiday spirit. Our goal is to reach many who would not otherwise be able to celebrate the holiday season. Our efforts are only possible with your support. Thank you for many years of success in our efforts, AP!


Cops for Tots Car Show & Toy Drive

Each year the Aransas Pass PD hosts it’s annual Cops for Tots Car Show. The entry fee for this event is an unwrapped toy for a boy or girl. Heck, just bring one for each!

This event is open to all. Enter your vehicle, or just come and see all the fine vehicles on display. Either way, your participation helps spread the Christmas spirit in a child’s life.

Shop with a Cop

This Christmas season marks the third year the “Shop with a Cop” program comes to Aransas Pass.

On Wednesday, December 14, 2016, selected students will shop with Aransas Pass and surrounding area law enforcement. The event takes place at the Walmart located at 2501 W. Wheeler Avenue in Aransas Pass. Afterwards, law enforcement and students will enjoy lunch together.

“Shop with a Cop” would not be possible without your kind donations.


Sgt. Anders’ Holiday Food Baskets

Continuing in the yearly tradition, AP officers will be delivering holiday meal baskets to families in need. The HEB meals come complete with sides and a dessert and are ready to be cooked and served, upon delivery. They feed a family of 6.

We had a great turnout for Thanksgiving. We handed out 25 meal packages, and we are preparing to hand out at least 25 more for Christmas. You must register and receive approval to get on our delivery list. There’s still plenty of time, register below.

This opportunity is open to residents of Aransas Pass.


Event History

Sgt. Dennis Anders (retired) began the Cops for Tots Car Show and Holiday Food Basket events years ago. We strive to keep these annual events alive. If you’d like to donate, please do so in person at the Aransas Pass Police Department (600 W. Cleveland Blvd, next to City Hall). Toys must remain unwrapped and should be placed inside the toy box in our lobby. All funds are placed into the Aransas Pass PD Holiday Fund. These monetary donations are used for food baskets. The more we receive, the more people we can feed. Thank you for your support!


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