The Cowboy Santas Program Inc. is a non-profit program that provides toys to children, 12 and under, from low-income Tarrant County families, during the holiday season.
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. Over the last two decades and through the support of city and community leaders, the program has grown to cover all of Tarrant County. Cowboy Santas Program is recognized by the Internal Revenue Services as a 501 C(3) charitable organization.
Serving all Tarrant County
Cowboy Santas Program Inc. serves the entire Tarrant County including the cities of Fort Worth, Arlington, Bedford, Mansfield, Hurst, North Richland Hills, Forest Hill etc. Families must have income at or below 150% of the Federal Income Guidelines and children must be below 12 years-old.

For the sixth consecutive year, CBS 11 and TXA 21 are partnering with the Cowboy Santas program to help bring joy to children who might not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas. The Cowboy Santas need YOUR help to provide toys, games and books to children ages 12 and under from low-income Tarrant County families. This year, our partners at the North Texas Business Alliance are making it easier for you to donate new, unwrapped toys and books at any of their locations.
