Need to get a letter to Santa? Area fire stations, including those in Beaufort and Port Royal, have decorated mailboxes to accept letters to Old Saint Nick now through Friday, December 16.
Firefighters have it on good report that Santa Claus will reply to every letter that is placed in those mailboxes before noon December 16. Grownups need to make sure their child’s letter is in an envelope with a return address so Santa and his elves can respond.
“For many years, fire departments across Beaufort County have helped bring in the holiday spirit with mailboxes for Santa,” said Captain John Robinson of the Beaufort/Port Royal Fire Department’s training and education services.
“It’s a pleasure to know how happy it makes kids feel to send off their letters – and then to get a letter back from Santa is maybe even better.”
Decorative mailboxes are available in front of all Beaufort and Port Royal fire stations. For more information, contact Capt. Robinson at (843) 525-7035.
