Respond to the call! Brentwood PO needs Christmas wish fulfillers

Approximately 600 children (and their parents, grandparents, etc.) are relying on Santa―the Brentwood Post Office―to fulfill their Christmas wishes this year.    The post office needs our help to make Christmas morning a happy one.   According to Dana Wyckoff, from Friends of Rosedale Library, "one little boy wrote this is the 2nd year he's asking for something, since he didn't get a reply last year."

There are various ways to help.

  • You can fulfill all or part of the requests in a letter
  • Swap out more general age-appropriate gifts (book, hat and gloves, doll, socks)
  • Individuals can pick up to 10 letters
  • Organizations and offices can take up to 25 letters
  • Fpr those who cannot get to the PO, Friends of the Rosedale Library has 20 letters.   You can fulfill all or part. or make a donation. Contact Wyckoff via email,

How to make this happen: With your driver's license in hand, go to Brentwood Post Office (900 Brentwood Rd NE) Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, Saturdays 9:00 am - Noon.   At post office, ask for Sherry/Secret Santa Helper.   When you return the gifts, they must be gift wrapped, marked with the number of the letter, and returned to the PO in a sealed mailing box (with number of the letter on the outside) NO later than Monday, December 21.   Donors pay for mailing (though they sometimes waive that if you're donating a lot).
