Letters can again be ‘mailed’ to Santa in downtown Chehalis


Experience Chehalis, Book ‘N’ Brush and Totally Pawsome have teamed up again this year to bring local boys and girls a little extra magic for the holiday season with the second annual “Letters to Santa” program, according to a news release.  

Santa mailboxes located just inside Book ‘N’ Brush and Totally Pawsome were set to be installed Monday, “ready to receive Dear Santa letters filled with hopes and wishes of children of all ages and addressed to none other than the one and only Santa Claus of the North Pole,” Experience Chehalis stated in the release. 

A few helpful notes on dropping off and receiving a reply:

• The return address on the letter must be legible to receive a response. No postage required.

• The child’s name needs to be clearly printed or it will be addressed to “my friend.”

• The “volunteer elves” try to ensure timely responses from Santa, but return times may vary.

• The original letter to Santa will not be returned, and all contact information is kept confidential.

• Keep in mind that Santa does not address a child’s gift request.

• Be patient. Volunteers put their free time into making the mailboxes happen in the spirit of the holidays.

Letters “mailed” by Dec. 15 with a legible return address will receive an answer from Santa by way of the “elves” of Experience Chehalis.  

“We thank Book ‘N’ Brush for purchasing these beautiful mailboxes,” Experience Chehalis stated.
