Volunteers needed to help fulfill children’s holiday wishes through Operation Santa

Santa Claus is ready to check his Christmas list, and the United States Postal Service is making sure he checks it twice! Susan W. Wright of USPS Corp Communications, joined us today to share how you can get involved with Operation Santa.

Thousands of letters to Santa arrive each year. USPS Operation Santa® invites people to adopt a family and respond to them.

Many parents are struggling to afford much of anything this holiday season, but the United States Postal Service’s Operation Santa is there for families in need.

The program helps get presents under the tree for kids who might not get much else and it’s really easy.

It all starts with a letter your child writes to Mr. Claus himself.

Santa Claus is ready to check his Christmas list and the United States Postal Service (USPS) is going to make sure he checks it twice.

Operation Santa is the postal service’s way to help needy families have gifts under the tree.

Kids can write their Christmas wishes to Santa and mail them to this address:

123 Elf Road
North Pole. Zip code 88888

Adopters wait for the letters to Santa to arrive, then choose the ones with wishes they wish to fulfill.
