From staff reports
Burton, Lady’s Island/St. Helena, and Sheldon firefighters are again enthusiastically volunteering to help Santa Claus get his mail from local children by placing Santa Mailboxes up at each of their fire stations.
Santa Claus receives his Christmas letters through many means, and wants to make sure that every child has a chance to mail their letters and wish lists to him. Because fire stations are available in every community, Santa approached his trusted community helpers to once again help him and the community with this important task.
Each year local firefighters coordinate with Santa and his Elves by placing Santa Mailboxes up at their fire stations for children to mail their letters. Every day, firefighters empty the mailboxes and lock the letters up until Santa’s Elves come to get them and bring them directly to the North Pole and into Santa’s hands. The firefighters feel it is their sacred and trusted duty to area children and families to help them have the best holiday season possible.
Santa Mailboxes will be going up on Monday, Nov. 28, and will remain up until the morning of December 18. Santa Mailboxes are white, adorned with his Santa’s face, and will be plainly visible at the front of each fire station. Santa promises that all letters with a legible name and address will receive his personal reply by Christmas.
