The USPS Operation Santa Program is 107 years old and still going strong!
The United States Postal Service established the Operation Santa program to help families and children in need at the holidays.
This year brings some exciting changes, a new website, an expansion of last year’s digital program, and Santa’s OFFICIAL postal address!! Send your cards and letters for Santa to:
123 Elf Road
When writing to Santa this year, it’s important to use the new address and make sure there's a stamp on the envelope — in the upper right hand corner — that will help the letters reach Santa in time to consider granting a child’s holiday wish.
There's also a new web address for letter adoption. Beginning November 18, customers in the 15 selected cities can adopt letters to Santa online at USPSOperationSanta.com
NOTE: Even though letters are adopted online, the adopter MUST go to a Post Office that offers “Label Broker” as an on-site service to send the gift. Adopters can find qualifying Label Broker™ Post Offices by visiting the Post Office™ Locator usps.com/locator. The digital cities were chosen based on, but not limited to, overall interest in the program, community need, and a mix of geographic locations.
USPS Operation Santa History
The Postal Service began receiving letters to Santa Claus more than 100 years ago; however, it was in 1912 when Postmaster General Frank Hitchcock authorized local postmasters to allow postal employees and citizens to respond to the letters — this became known as Operation Santa. The complete history can be found online https://about.usps.com/holidaynews/
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
