Would you like to adopt one or more families this year in an effort to help make their Christmas a cheerful event? The Fort Myers and Cape Coral post offices are offering “Operation Santa Mail” for the second year. The post offices will be intercepting Santa’s mail and reviewing it for letters from children whose parents could use help to have a brighter holiday.
The adopted families will be residents of Lee, Collier or Charlotte counties. Information on the adopted families is kept confidential. You will be provided with a child’s (or sometimes a parent’s) letter. You will be asked to purchase some or all of the requested items. Items are to be unwrapped and packaged in a box ready to mail.
Your “Operation Santa Mail” package will need to be delivered to a designated drop-off Post Office where a postal clerk will address the package and advise you of the postage required. You will need to provide the postal clerk with the numbered Dear Santa letter. The Post Office will deliver the package with the “Operation Santa Mail” return address
