We know Santa has a huge staff of elves that are helping him out, but this year, he sent an SOS out and needs a few more adults throughout the country, including in Minnesota, to help make the Christmas magic happen for kids.

United States Postal Service Just Received an SOS From Santa and Needs Help From Residents in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin

Just a few weeks ago, the United States Postal Service let all the children in the world know that they were ready to pick up their wish lists for Santa and take them directly to the North Pole for them.

Once those letters arrive, Santa and his elves work hard to fulfill all of the Christmas wishes.  But this year, a few more adults are needed to help make those Christmas gifts happen...and that is where YOU come in!

Santa knows that there are many who could use a little extra help and he wants to help send his love and magic this Christmas season so everyone has a gift to open.

How To Help Santa Make Christmas Miracles Happen for Kids in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin

For 100+ years, Santa has been synched with USPS Operation Santa to kids have a gift to open on Christmas morning.  This year, Santa needs a little bit more help.  Actually, he needs a lot more help.  You don't have to put on a Santa suit or go through the rigorous process of getting trained to fly reindeer but you can help Santa out from your own home.  According to USPS, here's how Operation Santa works:

  • Hundreds of thousands of letters are written to the USPS Operation Santa program every year in hopes of being adopted by kind and generous people across the country. These letters are opened by Santa’s Elves and, for safety reasons, all personally identifiable information of the letter writer is removed (i.e. last names, addresses, ZIP Codes) and uploaded to USPSOperationSanta.com for adoption.
  • Letters will be available for nationwide adoption by visiting USPSOperationSanta.com — all from the socially distant safety of your own home. Potential adopters can read the letters and pick one, or more, that they’d like to fulfill. For security reasons, potential adopters must be vetted by going through a short registration and ID verification process before they are allowed to adopt any letter.
  • Companies also help adopt letters. Every year many companies create teams and adopt several letters.
  • Answer the SOS and start reading the letters sent to Santa here.
