Welcome to the Irving Police & Fire Blue Christmas Official Website
It’s All About Giving & Caring
Blue Christmas was started in 1979 out of the then City Municipal Court building at 835 W. Irving Blvd. It started with 25 families and it has now grown to where we attempt to take care of 400+ families that live in Irving. We originally were under the umbrella of the Irving Police Association charitable account, and then we moved to the Irving Fire Fighters Association. When Texas Stadium was blown up, Swanson gave the City of Irving a donation to be distributed among programs that helped kids in the city. Blue Christmas was awarded $5000 which was the beginning of becoming a 501 c 3 tax exempt program under our own umbrella.

Blue Christmas 2018 Sponsors
Thank you to all of our sponsors! We could not have done this without you!
One of Our Annual Events
Each year we do two fund raisers to acquire funds to buy toys and food. We have added some other events to assist in getting the food and toys needed each year. The first is a Chili Cook Off that is held in conjunction with the City of Irving’s Christmas Extravaganza each year on the first Saturday of December. For this we do Santa pictures, bounce house, cake walk, vendors, silent auction, tasting cups, concessions, and raffle. We sell booths and get items for the raffle from the vendors.
