USPS SANTA LETTERS

The USPS Operation Santa® program is 107 years old. The program was established by the Postal Service 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!

Santa Claus

123 Elf Road

North Pole

88888

 

When writing to Santa this year, it’s important to use the new address as well as making sure there is 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.

 

Also new this year, the digital program has expanded to 15 cities across the country, up from seven in 2018.  In addition to the program upgrades, there is also a new web address for letter adoption, USPSOperationSanta.com.

 

Beginning Nov. 18, customers in the 15 selected cities can adopt letters to Santa online at USPSOperationSanta.com. It’s important to note that even though the 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 Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
