USPS says there are more people wanting to give than there are children writing letters! They’re hoping more children will write to Santa.

“I saw a letter yesterday where a child asked for a donkey. They ask for Pokémon, they ask for toys. I had a few that asked for a mattress,” said Kim Zagar, USPS.

You can adopt letters on your own, on behalf of a company, or even as a team.

Here’s how USPS Operation Santa works!

Step 1: Kids write letters and mail them to
