About 

Welcome to the Official website of Irving Police & Fire Blue Christmas.

It’s all about caring and giving back to the Irving community

In 1979, while Irving Police Officer Becky Fann was working in the community, she identified a number of families who had fallen on hard times. Becky realized that these families would not be able to afford giving Christmas to their children, so she made providing a Christmas meal and gifts for the children her mission. Becky raised money and donations through her peers and was able to give meals and gifts to 25 families in Irving, and with that, Irving Police & Fire Blue Christmas was born.

When she retired from the Irving Police Department in 2004, Becky’s passion for Blue Christmas did not diminish; instead, she threw herself into making it bigger and better, adding in fundraisers such as the Annual Chili Cookoff and Pancake Breakfast, and seeking out corporate sponsors. Irving has responded to her efforts with many successful food drives, toy drives, and other events throughout the year focused at bringing the community together to help those in need.

For 40 years, thousands of families have received a merry Christmas from Blue Christmas, under the direction of Becky Fann. Although we lost Becky in January of 2020, her legacy of selfless service lives on through Blue Christmas, and her dedication to Irving has inspired many others to help the less fortunate in our community.
