The United States Postal Service launched a program called Operation Santa and they're in over their heads. They are now asking for volunteers to step up and fill the shoes of Santa's elves, because there are so many letters that need to be answered.

Operation Santa has been running for 105 years, getting letters from kids addressed to Santa Claus. In 1912, Postmaster General Frank Hitchcock allowed local Postmasters to allow employees and everyday citizens to respond to these letters. The number of letters they received continued to climb; and in 1940 community groups, corporations, and charities joined in to help respond to children's letters to Santa.

This year, help spread the holiday cheer by visiting your local USPS and inquiring about responding to letters to Santa.
