Residents can help Santa fulfill Christmas gift wishes
USPSOperationSanta.com is live and ready to help make the 2021 holiday season special for kids and families in need.
The program has helped hundreds of thousands of people for more than a century.
Registered adopters should visit USPSOperationSanta.com, read through the letters and pick one or more wishes that they’d like to make come true.
Once the letters are chosen, adopters must follow the directions they received in their welcome email in order to make sure gifts arrive on time.
Letter adopters are responsible for all costs to ship the gift packages, including appropriate postage.
Visit USPSOperationSanta.com, click on the registration link and follow the prompts.
For security reasons, all prospective adopters must be vetted through a short registration and ID verification process before they can participate.
If someone has adopted letters in the past, they must still be verified each year.
If for some reason potential adopters are unable to verify their identity online, they will be provided a code and given instructions on how to get verified in person at one of the 19,000 participating Post Office locations which offer the Label Broker service.
USPS Operation Santa was established by the Postal Service 109 years ago to help those in need experience a happy holiday season.
You don’t have to be religious or even believe in Santa to participate.
Program participation is simple. Just write a letter, not an email, put it in an envelope affixed with a first-class mail stamp, and make sure you include your full return address - apartment number, directional information (i.e., E. Main St., Apt. 103) and ZIP Code - and send it to Santa’s official workshop address:
123 Elf Road
North Pole, 88888
Letters must be postmarked by Dec. 10 and will be uploaded to the website through Dec. 15.
The last day to adopt letters is Dec. 22 and packages can be shipped until Jan. 14.
