USPS Bringing Back ‘Operation Santa’ for 2021

There’s still time to help the United States Postal Service and Santa Claus ensure every child ends 2021 on a high note.

The USPS Operation Santa program, now in its 109th year, is asking volunteers across the U.S. to help with this year’s efforts. The program helps children in need have the experience of opening presents on Christmas.

Every year, kids write hundreds of thousands of letters and hope their wishes are adopted. Santa’s Elves tale out all personally identifiable information from the letter writer, for safety reasons, and the letters are uploaded to to get adopted.

Letters are available to read now. Volunteers may read the letters and pick one or more to fulfill. Those looking to adopt need to go through a short registration and ID verification process before they’re able to adopt a letter.

Children in need may still take part in the USPS Operation Santa program by writing to Santa at the following address:

Santa Claus
123 Elf Road
North Pole

Letters will be accepted if they’re postmarked by Dec. 10. For additional information about the USPS Operation Santa program, go here.
