(KBSI) – You can help Santa fulfill the hopeful requests of children and families this year. The United States Postal Service offers USPS Operation Santa that allows people to adopt thousands of letters the USPS receives from children to Santa each year and find just the right gifts to help Santa fulfill their wishes.

The gifts are shipped on behalf of the North Pole, and together deliver holiday magic.

  • Create an account and get verified, then read the letters and adopt one you love.
  • Find the perfect gift and ship it from a participating Post Office™ location.
  • Your package will arrive straight from Santa himself and wow its recipient.

There are two different ways to participate.

  1. Adopt as a team
    • Come together with friends, family and co-workers to adopt and fulfill letters. Here’s what you can do with your team:
      • Set goals to get your team excited and ready to respond to more letters.
      • View progress of your team’s activity and adoption status.
      • Connect with teammates and host team events to multiply the magic.
    • Tap here to create a team
  2. Adopt on your own
    • Not ready for a team? Finding a letter you love for yourself is a great place to start. You can create or join a team at any time.
      • Create an account and get verified.
      • Select one or more letters. You can even adopt a whole family’s letters to make their holiday truly magical.

Want to write a letter to Santa?

Santa
123 Elf Road
North Pole, 88888

Include your name and return address on the upper left corner of the envelope, and affix a First-Class™ stamp on the upper right corner. Without a return address, the USPS won’t know where to send your gift. Without a postage stamp, your letter’s journey will end before it can be posted on the USPS website.
