Giving Back - Holiday Drives

Every year the City of La Porte shows up in a BIG way to help families in need during the holiday season. This year we plan to make it as easy as possible for citizens to get involved in those efforts by placing all of the efforts in a central location right here on our website. Below you will find information on the Police Department’s Blue Santa Program, the LPFD annual toy drive with drop off locations, and the Municpal Court’s holiday drive for Communities in Schools. The City’s spirit to give is one that is unmatched in other communities, and we appreciate your willing hearts showing up to serve each year!
Municipal Court Food Drive
Each year the Municipal Court teams up with Communities in Schools to hold a food drive benefiting children in La Porte and LPISD schools. They are looking for canned goods, peanut butter, granola bars, packaged snacks, macaroni and cheese, cereal & pop tars, new or slightly used backpacks, pencils and spiral notebooks, and gift cards to local grocery stores. All donations can be dropped off at the Court at 3005 N 23rd St through December 14th!
