For 38 years, Cowboy Santas has helped local families in need by providing toys for their children at Christmas. Over time, Cowboy Santas gifting program expanded to community centers, back-to-school programs, senior citizens, sheltered children, and displaced families. To better meet these various and growing needs, beginning this Christmas, Cowboy Santas will partner with the Salvation Army, another charitable organization that successfully serves needy families in Tarrant County.
Your contributions have helped spread joy in our community both at Christmas and year-round. We appreciate your past support and hope that you will continue to promote the Cowboy Santas mission by offering your time and monetary donations to the Salvation Army. Cowboy Santas families will be served via the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, which provides and serves over 12,000 children.

The partnership is expected to result in the largest holiday toy collection effort in North Texas.
Since 1980, thousands of low-income families in Tarrant County have received holiday toys from the Cowboy Santas program.
This year, a new partnership with the Salvation Army will bring even more smiles to children’s faces.
The Cowboy Santas board has determined that the best way to continue serving local families is by merging with another nonprofit organization. Beginning in September, Cowboy Santas will become part of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.
Along with its the familiar red kettles, the Angel Tree program is one of the Salvation Army's highest profile Christmas efforts. Cowboy Santas will add more families — especially from Fort Worth and Tarrant County — to the Angel Tree program.
The Cowboy Santas warehouse on North Main Street closed on August 30, and all existing clients are urged to apply to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. Angel Tree provides toys and clothing for children up to 14 years old.
