Operation Santa wish fulfillment program returns

Keiki from across Hawaii are encouraged to participate in the U.S. Postal Service’s Operation Santa wish fulfillment program.

The program allows volunteers to “adopt” letters and fulfill Christmas wishes by sending gifts in Santa’s place.


To participate in the program, all keiki need to do is write a letter to Santa, put it in a stamped envelope with a return address & send it to the USPS Operation Santa address: Santa Claus, 123 Elf Road, North Pole 88888

Letters writers must stamp and address their letters correctly and include a return address. They should list specific wishes—including sizes, styles, colors, titles and names.

Letters must be postmarked by Dec. 12. Letters are available for adoption through Dec. 19.

Hawaii residents are encouraged to go online and adopt a letter to help a child have a happy holiday. Letters can be filtered by state. Last year, 131 Hawaii children had their wishes granted through this program.

Details on how to adopt a Santa letter and a history of the program are available at USPSOperationSanta.com
