(Joplin, MO) – With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s time for children to begin writing their letters to Santa! Joplin Parks and Recreation has made special arrangements with Santa Claus and is proud to offer the “Letters to Santa” campaign again this year. Share the excitement of opening a personalized letter from Santa at the North Pole. Santa provides this great opportunity to communicate with your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, or friend.
Children are invited to write a letter to Santa and drop it in Santa’s Mailbox at the Joplin Parks and Recreation offices at 3301 W. 1st Street or at Academy Sports & Outdoors, located at 1717 S. Range Line Road.
Santa’s Mailboxes will be at both locations from November 16 to December 5. Letters must legibly include the child’s first and last name, a return mailing address, and a few details about the child (school if attending, brothers or sisters, pets, friends, and a wish list).
The letters will be delivered to the North Pole and Santa will write back to each child who sends him a letter.
Please address letters to:
9 Reindeer Road
For more information, please call the Joplin Parks and Recreation office at 417.625.4750.
