You’ve written your letters to Santa Claus…now what? Make sure jolly old St. Nick receives your requests in time by dropping them off at one of these spots in Wichita!

Noted locations will also provide a response back.


If you’re hoping to send your letter off to Santa and get a return letter postmarked from the North Pole, here’s what to do:

  1. Have the child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
  2. Write a personalized response to the child’s letter and sign it “From Santa.”
  3. Insert both letters into an envelope, and address it to the child.
  4. Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
  5. Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
  6. Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address it to:
