USPS wants you to embrace your inner Santa

Posted: Updated:

The United States Postal Service wants to help you embrace your inner Saint Nick.

The Postal Service is launching Operation Santa, where you pick a letter sent to Santa from kids in need across the country.

Then you pack an item or two on their holiday wish list - anything from toys, to winter basics like a warm coat, or new shoes.

Your gift needs to be mailed out by Dec. 20.

You can learn more by going to BeAnElf.org.
