Kenton Parks & Recreation, Public Library team up for letters to/from Santa program

Santa Claus letters are coming to town, thanks to a program by Kenton County Parks & Recreation, in cooperation with the Kenton County Public Library.

Santa’s workshop is really humming and Santa is busy reading letters and making lists!

Through this program, children will be able to mail a letter to Santa and receive a response by Christmas.

Santa Express Mailboxes are installed in Kenton County Public Libraries, Kenton County Courthouses and the Kenton County Animal Shelter and will remain there until December 10. There is no postage necessary for letters that are dropped off at these locations. Letters may be dropped off during regular business hours.

Santa, of course, knows where each child lives; however, the post office needs home addresses to deliver the letters! Because each child at the same address will receive a different letter from Santa at home, it is the child’s name and complete home address must be correct and legible.

The program is free, but help Kenton County Parks & Recreation share the holiday spirit by bringing a non-perishable food or personal care item donation for Be Concerned when dropping off the letters.

There will be a specially decorated barrel right next to the mailbox. The goal is 2,000 donated items!

Special thanks to Jude’s Custom Exhaust, Auto Repair & Towing in Independence for their continued support.
