Kenton County Letters to Santa Program Begins Monday

 

The "Letters to Santa, Letters from Santa" program begins Monday in Kenton County.

The county's parks and recreation department, in cooperation with the Kenton County Public Library, puts on the annual program.

Children will be able to mail a letter to Santa and receive a response by Christmas.

Santa Express Mailboxes will be installed in Kenton County Public Libraries, the Kenton County Administration Building, and the county courthouse in Independence, as well as the Kenton County Animal Shelter on November 12 and will remain there until December 9.

There is no postage necessary for letters that are dropped off at these locations. Letters may be dropped off during regular business hours. 

The post office will need home addresses in order to deliver the responses from Santa. Families are asked to include the child's name and complete home address.

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 this year is for 2,000 donated items.
