TOLEDO, Ohio (13abc Action News) - UPDATE: Some letters did not have return addresses. Look to the link on the right to see if one was yours.
One Toledo business is making sure your letters to Santa make it to the North Pole this holiday season.
The Toledo Hemp Center is teaming up with local businesses to place 'Santa Mailboxes' at various locations across the Glass City.
Leader with the hemp center say they came up with the idea to help bring more smiles to children in the community.
“I always dreamed of receiving a letter from Santa, I can imagine the excitement of getting a letter back from the jolly man himself. It has to be truly exciting for a child," said Toledo Hemp Center manager Payton DeMoe. “So we decided to find a convenient way for local businesses to get involved, by becoming hosting sites for the boxes.”
Starting November 13th through 27th you can drop off letters to Santa Claus at these locations: Toledo Family Pharmacy - East, Ye Olde Durty Bird in Toledo, Dually’s Gastropub in Toledo, Deet’s BBQ in Perrysburg, Toledo Hemp Center and Dandino’s Pizza & More in Toledo.
Also from November 27th through December 15th you can drop off letters at these locations: Toledo Family Pharmacy - West, Ye Olde Durty Bird in Toledo, Pizza Cat in Toledo, Deet’s BBQ in Toledo, Toledo Hemp Center and Dandino’s Pizza & More in Toledo.
Toledo Hemp Center is picking up the cost for the mailboxes, stamps and other supplies needed for the collection.
