The U.S. Postal Service seeks helpful elves to help Santa spread extra magic this holiday season. 

USPS kicked off Operation Santa for the 110th Year in a row, relying solely on random acts of kindness and generosity of strangers. Those who would like to participate may adopt a letter written to Santa to help families have a magical holiday when they otherwise may not. 

The Postal Service has received letters from throughout the country since Sept. 15 to deliver them to Santa’s workshop at 123 Elf Road, North Pole, 88888. Letters sent with accurate postage and complete return addresses have been posted on

Adopters must undergo registration and verification to read through the letters found on USPS Operation Santa’s website and choose which letter and wish they hope to fulfill.

The program does not pay for any postage fees or shipping costs, but the release does share some tips and tricks to help reduce any fees adopters may face.

The last day to adopt letters is Dec. 19, which coincides with the Priority Mail suggested deadline. Packages must be shipped via Priority Mail service, but gifts do not need to be in Priority Mail- branded boxes, according to USPS in a news release.
