About United States Postal Service’s Operation Santa:
New York City’s Operation Santa program is the largest public adoption Post Office in the country, receiving nearly a half million letters a season. With that much Santa Mail, it stands to reason they need the public’s help. Every year the iconic James A. Farley Building on Eighth Avenue is visited by tens of thousands of people who come to adopt letters from needy New York families. A kick-off celebration is held, usually during the first week of December. The New York City program has changed very little since the 1940s when it was first opened to the public and continues to thrive much to the delight of both the writers and readers of Letters to Santa.
