How to Adopt a “Dear Santa” Letter

Individual customers and representatives of organizations wanting to adopt a letter must come to a participating Operation Santa Post Office in person. Both individual customers and organizational representatives must fill out the proper PS Forms 6012 (organization), 6012-A (organization record of letter), or 6012-I (individual) and show identification before viewing any letters.

  • For organizations wanting to adopt a letter, please send a representative with correspondence on letterhead from your company/organization authorizing the representative to view the letters on behalf of your company/organization. Your representative must present his or her employee ID and a valid state driver’s license or state-issued ID card.
  • For individuals wanting to adopt a letter, please bring a valid state driver’s license or state-issued ID card.

After completing the forms, you may then read and choose a letter(s). To protect the anonymity of the letter writers, all personal information will be blacked out in the letters you view — no last names, addresses or contact information of any kind will be visible.

Operation Santa answers "Dear Santa" letters from needy children each ChristmasBring your selections to a postal clerk so the clerk can notate which letter(s) you will adopt.

Here is the fun part — you get to be Santa’s helper by fulfilling the wishes of the letter writer.

Once you have fulfilled the wish, you simply bring your wrapped gift(s) back to the same Operation Santa location to mail.

Individuals and organizations will be responsible for paying the postage to mail the gifts to the recipient.

Once you pay the postage, the postal clerks will match your box with the letter writer by using an internal numbering system.

The clerk takes the box and retrieves the original letter using the numbering system to create a mailing label.

The return address on the box will read “Operation Santa, North Pole.”

Touching Dear Santa Letters From Needy Children

Operation Santa answers "Dear Santa" letters from needy children each Christmas

 

Each year Santa gets thousands of letters from children who are not asking for the most popular toy or game of the season, even though they do want toys. Instead, they are asking for clothes, personal care items, gifts for siblings and parents. Or even their beloved pets!

We are sharing excerpts of the letters just as they are written so please overlook spelling errors.

 

Dear Santa Claus,

My dog wants to have some toys and trets and that is it.

 

Dear Santa,

Please send to my mom food or money for Christmas Dinner!
