In an effort to bring cheer to children and adults alike this holiday season, the U.S. Postal Service has ramped up its 108th annual USPS Operation Santa.
“The mission of USPS Operation Santa is to provide a channel where people can give back and help children and families – enabling them to have a magical holiday when they otherwise might not – one letter to Santa at a time,” according to USPS.com.
Some letters have asked for simple items, while others speak to the heart a little more.
A 12-year-old girl asked Santa for some clothes and shoes for her and her younger sister, because their mother, “works very hard to provide us food and to pay the rent.” She continued to ask for something special for their mother because, “she deserves the best.
“And, if you please can send my sister some toys so she could play, I will really appreciate it.”
In a letter Santa wrote to USPS about Operation Santa, he said, “Every year, many letters get sent to the North Pole – so many that it’s difficult to answer them all. But this year, with the help of the United States Postal Service, generous people all around the country were able to deliver cheer by adopting these letters.”
