Silver Stars is an extension of Cowboy Santas Program, Inc., and provides holiday care packages to isolated, low-income Tarrant County elderly.
The holiday season is a time for family, happiness and joy. For many senior citizens it is a time of loneliness, isolation and sadness. Since 1998, the City of Fort Worth through its Community Action Partners Program, has committed to serving these vulnerable seniors by ensuring that they are remembered during the holiday season.
Seniors, deemed homebound and/or isolated from community support, are identified through partnerships with local social services agencies, nursing facilities, and community organizations across Tarrant County and brought into the program.
When customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations such as Cowboy Santas.

The Cowboy Santas Program Inc. is a 501 C(3) charitable organization that provides toys to children, 12 and under, from low-income Tarrant County families, during the holiday season.
Over the last two decades and through the support of city and community leaders, the program has grown to cover all of Tarrant County. Families must have income at or below 175% of the Federal Income Guidelines and children must be below 12 years-old.
The program began in 1981 at several Fort Worth Community Centers with a group of community leaders to help provide area families with toys for the holidays.
We accept toys and new books year-round.
Donations are tax deductible. We use PayPal to secure donations online. Toys are collected year-round.
Registration for Cowboy Santas begins in September 2017
Families can register for the program this fall at any of our Community Action Partner centers. For more info about Community Action Partners, click below.
