USPS Operation Santa relies solely on random acts of kindness and the generosity of strangers.
USPS Operation Santa
What to include within the letter:
- Tell Santa what type of year you’ve had. Be honest. He knows!
- Requests for clothes and shoes should include preferred size, style and color. For toys, games and books, include names and titles.
- Return address information with a full name, street address, apartment/unit number (if applicable), city, state and ZIP Code.
Additionally, those who adopt letters are kept anonymous — it’s from Santa, after all!
To adopt a letter, you will need to verify your identity. Register early so that you are ready to adopt.
You don't need to have your identity verified to send a letter.
