Travis County Brown Santa depends on the generosity of individuals, groups, and businesses in the community like YOU to provide items for our fellow citizens that are less fortunate. Since 1981, Brown Santa has helped thousands of children and families that live inside Travis County with more than half of those being children.

Brown Santa aims to raise $50,000 in donations, which is the minimum to cover the cost of the food and toys.

  • Toy Box: each child (0-14 yrs.) receives 5 gifts which consist of two toys, one bundle of books, one stuffed animal and one puzzle. The family is provided with a board game.
