SANTA’S MAIL BAG
Santa’s Mailbag is celebrating it’s 60th anniversary answering children’s letters sent to Santa Claus at North Pole, Alaska. Started in 1954, Santa’s Mailbag has operated as a community project in conjunction with the United States Postal Service “Letters to Santa Program” and is among the oldest such organizations in the United States. In 2006 Santa’s Mailbag officially incorporated in the State of Alaska as a Public non-profit corporation and currently has it offices at 202 S. Santa Claus Lane, North Pole, Alaska.

Each year scores of volunteer “Elves” help answer thousands of children’s letters to Santa. Although there is no exact count of how many children’s letters to Santa have been answered since 1954, by Santa’s Elves, recent records show that from December 31, 2000 through December 18, 2014 slightly over 262,500 letters have been answered. It is likely that Santa’s Mailbag has answered close to 800,000 letters since it’s beginning in 1954. That’s an incredible achievement for a community, currently with a population of 2,200 residence.
