Operation Santa Program Offered By USPS

The US Postal Service has opened it’s annual Operation Santa Program for the season.

Operation Santa is a 111-year-old program run by the U.S. Postal Service. Letters are accepted from everywhere in the country and can be adopted by anyone who has successfully registered in the program.

Letters are reviewed and personal information is taken out and they are then uploaded to the operation Santa website where people can safely and securely help children and families have a magical holiday when they otherwise might not.

Envelopes should be addressed to: SANTA CLAUS, 123 ELF ROAD, NORTH POLE 88888.
Letters need to include first and last names and a complete return address and be postmarked by December 11th to be uploaded to the programs website.
letters should be legible and include specific gift details, clothes and shoe sizes, colors, and styles. This information makes it easier for the letter adopter to know what to purchase.

There is no age limit for letter writers.

The post office says Operation Santa is not a guaranteed gift-giving program. It relies solely on the generosity of strangers. It allows individuals to adopt letters written to Santa and send gifts anonymously.

More information on sending letters or becoming an adoptee to buy a gift for a letter sender can be found on the post offices website at USPSOperationSanta.com.
