Adam Beard is a patrol sergeant with the Port Lavaca Police Department and has helped with Blue Santa in years past, saying that the event always brings joy to his community.

“I’m called out to see people sometimes at their worse, and to see a family smile, to see a child smile, to see em light up when they come to the door and see Blue Santa there it’s an experience like any other,” says Beard.
