Local children can write letters, get a response from Santa with 'Santa Mailboxes'

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Several mailboxes are popping up over the Glass City. But these aren't ordinary mailboxes.

The letters in these boxes go to the big man himself, Santa Claus.

The Toledo Hemp Center has teamed up with UT co-ed fraternity Gamma Eta, as well as local businesses to help make the holidays special for children in the Toledo area.

Kids can write a letter to Santa and drop it off in one of these mailboxes around the city. Then, all they have to do is wait for a response.

"I always dreamed of receiving a letter from Santa. I can imagine the excitement of getting a letter back from the jolly man himself. It has to be truly exciting for a child," said Payton DeMoe, manager of the Toledo Hemp Center. "So we decided to find a convenient way for local businesses to get involved by becoming hosting sites for the boxes."

With the help of pledges from Gamma Eta, "Santa" will respond to all letters that have return addresses.

Below is the list of businesses that are participating, as well as the dates you can find the Santa Mailboxes:
