Operation Blue Santa delivers toys and food to local families in need during the holiday season.

December 9, 2022 – The holidays are the perfect time to appreciate all good things in our lives, as well as to give back to those in need. Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning, and Electrical feels strongly about supporting the community during this special time of the year and participated as the main sponsor for CBS Austin and Telemundo Austin’s Toy Drive for Operation Blue Santa. Abacus also donated an additional $10,000 to support Operation Blue Santa’s goal of distributing gifts to some 10,000 families in the Austin area.

"We enjoy giving back to the community because we live here, we work here and we are a part of this fabric of Austin,” said Brandon Keller, CFO of Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning and Electrical. “Operation Blue Santa is doing something amazing for the community; they are making dreams come true and we wanted to make sure we were a major part of that reality.”

The organization has been a part of Austin for 50 years and was started by two local police officers. The first year they served 20 families and has grown exponentially from there. Operation Blue Santa will continue to collect toys until December 16th at Austin Fire stations near you. Monetary donations can also be made online at bluesanta.org.
