The Postal Service’s revered 106-year old Operation Santa program is being offered in Orlando. For the 10th year, customers in the Central Florida area can go to Orlando Main Post Office, browse through letters written to Santa, adopt one or two and help make the holidays happier for others.

“The Postal Service is extremely proud of this program. More than 100 years ago, employees from coast to coast began responding to the letters to Santa that were received in the U.S. Mail,” said Orlando Postmaster Diane Tindle. “That employee-led grassroots program evolved into an annual tradition in communities around the country. Our goal is to help as many people as we can experience the magic of the holidays.”

This year, customers adopt letters between 9:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. from December 11 through December 14.

Customers can go to usps.com/holidaynews for additional information on this program, as well as information on holiday stamps, shipping deadlines, tips to avoid shipping glitches, and more.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
