Where to write to Santa

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Here's where to mail letters to Santa or sponsor needy families this holiday season:


        Cincinnati's main post office on Dalton Avenue in Queensgate collects stamped letters addressed to Santa from mailboxes in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.

        Individuals or corporate sponsors who want to adopt a needy child or family for the 2001 holiday season can go to the lobby of the main post office on Dalton Street, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.

        For information on sponsorship or writing a letter to Santa, call (513) 684-5470.

Kenton County

        Special Santa Express mailboxes were installed Friday at five locations. All letters received by Dec. 14 will be hand-delivered to Santa by Kenton County Judge-executive Dick Murgatroyd.

        Santa mailboxes are at all three branches of the Kenton County Public Library: 5th Street and Scott Boulevard, Covington; 6477 Taylor Mill Road, Independence; and 3130 Dixie Highway. Erlanger. Library hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

        The Covington branch is also open 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Both Kenton County courthouses will have Santa Express mailboxes. The courthouse at 303 Court St. in Covington is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and the courthouse on Ky. 17 in Independence is open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.


        Children can mail letters to the Newport city building, 998 Monmouth St., c/o Newport Recreation, Newport 41071, or drop them off at a special mailbox in the lobby 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays Dec. 3-19. Elves from Newport Recreation will make sure that the letters are answered by Christmas.
