Local post office spreads Christmas joy to California
Santa Letters4
McMinnville Post Office employees received an opportunity to spread some Christmas cheer more than 2,000 miles away when they received an unexpected letter to Santa. Staff and customers of the post office donated items for care packages to three children in Los Angeles, Calif., who might not receive presents at Christmas.

Santa Claus receives billions of letters from children around the world every year. Locally, McMinnville Post Office received approximately 100 letters in its special Santa Claus mailbox where children could send a letter and receive a response, while the Southern Standard received, printed and forwarded hundreds of letters to St. Nick. Postal supervisor Sherrie Honea says one letter caught the hearts of the staff.
