Each year, the United States Postal Service (USPS) gears up to give much-needed relief to Santa through its Operation Santa Program, making holiday wishes come true.
The letter adoption program allows those registering through the postal services website to act as Santa’s elves and spread holiday cheer.
September 18th was the official start, with mailrooms beginning to accept letters to the Jolly Old Man with today marking the launch of the registration for volunteers, with letters available to read and adopt on November 20th.
You can help be part of the Christmas magic this holiday season by creating your own account by visiting usps operation santa.com.
If your child needs to write their letter, here are those important details to include on the envelope:
After addressing the letter to Santa himself, you will need his official address, which is,
123 Elf Rd. North Pole, (zip code) 88888
This will get your children’s letter directly to the big man’s U.S. satellite workshop, where they are opened and reviewed, your personal information will be safeguarded, and the letters will be uploaded to the USPSoperationSanta.com website.
Letters must be postmarked by December 11th to be part of the program. Letter templates can also be downloaded from the usps website.
Operation Santa has been helping families enjoy the spirit of the season one letter at a time for 111 years.
And that’s what’s happening today from your only local news radio, keeping you informed and connected to your communities throughout Lassen Plumas and sierra counties.
