Santa and his elves are doing their part to help everyone stay safe and healthy so they can enjoy the holidays with their families. This year, instead of visiting with children in person, they can write him letters and drop them off at one of six holiday-decorated mailboxes around Olathe.
Mailboxes are located at:
• 119th HyVee – 18101 W. 119th St.
• 151st HyVee – 14955 151st St.
• Indian Creek Library – 16100 W. 135th St.
• Olathe Public Library (Temporary Location) – 1078A W. Santa Fe St.
• Olathe Community Center – 1205 E. Kansas City Rd.
* Olathe City Hall – 100 E. Santa Fe St.
Each Thursday in December, Santa’s elves will pick up the letters and make sure they get to Santa. He’ll even read a few on social media. Include an email address in your letter to receive an extra special surprise from Santa!
The holidays may look a little different this year, but the magic remains the same. More information is available at OlatheKS.org/Santa. Write your letter to Santa today so he’ll get it in time for Christmas!
