Raleigh Parks is hosting a “Letters to Santa” initiative at select community centers. Participants can download or pick up pre-formatted letter templates, fill them out, and drop them off at participating community centers between November 25 and December 17. These letters will be guaranteed to reach Santa in time for him to read and respond to each one, with responses available for pick-up on or after December 19 at the same centres.
Raleigh Parks Hosts Letters to Santa Event
Children in Raleigh, N.C. can now start sending their Christmas wish lists to Santa Claus, thanks to the local parks department. Raleigh Parks is hosting a “Letters to Santa” event at various community centers, which allows kids to get their holiday wish lists delivered straight to the North Pole.
For ease of participation, the city provides pre-formatted letter templates in both English and Spanish. These templates can be obtained from their website or picked up at any participating community center.
Once the letters are completed, they can be returned to any of the participating community centers between Saturday, Nov. 25, and Sunday, Dec. 17, during operating hours. Santa will then read and respond to every letter. The return letters from Santa can be collected from the same community center where they were submitted from Tuesday, Dec. 19 onwards.
For those with accessibility needs, Santa letters can be emailed to LettersTo.Santa@raleighnc.gov, and Santa will reply via email. There’s no need for registration to participate in this event.
