The Family Matters Club’s elves are helping to deliver letters and wish lists to Santa. Children under the age of 18 are invited to write a letter to Santa along with their wish list and mail it to 29873 Mayflower Dr., Canyon Lake, CA, 92587. Letters may also be dropped off on the porch at that address. The deadline is Dec. 18.

Each child who submits a letter will receive a custom letter back from Santa and a special reindeer treat to leave out on Christmas Eve.

“We will try our best to fulfill an item wish on the list, however, sometimes Santa cannot make some of the item

s. In that case, we will choose something age appropriate for the child,” said Family Matters Club Founder Shawna Bowen.

Letters to Santa are being accepted from all children, however, the club will only be delivering gifts to children who live in Canyon Lake. Children who wish to receive a letter back from Santa are reminded to include their address in the letter.
