Kenton County Parks & Recreation, in cooperation with the Kenton County Public Library, is excited to announce its “Letters To Santa, Letters From Santa” program will begin on Monday, Nov. 13. 

Santa’s workshop is really humming and Santa is busy reading letters and making lists! Through this program, children will be able to mail a letter to Santa and receive a response from him by Christmas. 

Santa Express Mailboxes will be installed in Kenton County Public Libraries, the Kenton County Government Center in Covington, the Historic Kenton County Courthouse in Independence and at Kenton County Animal Services on Nov. 13 and will remain there until Dec. 11. There is no postage necessary for letters that are dropped off at these locations. Letters may be dropped off during regular business hours.  

How to mail your Letter to Santa: 

  • Kenton County Government Center in Covington, Historic Kenton County Courthouse in Independence & Kenton County Animal Services: Place letter in the Santa Express Mailbox. 
  • Kenton County Public Libraries: Place letter in the Santa Express Mailbox or drop off letter through the drive thru. 
  • Submit your letter online at

All in-person locations are available during their regular business hours.

Santa, of course, knows where each child lives; however, the post office needs home addresses to deliver the letters! Because each child at the same address will receive a different letter from Santa at home, it is very important that the child’s name and complete home address are correct and legible.

The program is free, but help Kenton County Parks & Recreation share the holiday spirit by bringing a non-perishable food or personal care item donation for Be Concerned when dropping off the letters. 

Special thanks to Archways McDonald’s and Jude’s Custom Exhaust, Auto Repair & Towing in Independence for their continued support.
