Starting tomorrow the City of Wichita, Starkey Inc. and Cambridge Market are once again teaming up to spread holiday cheer through the Letters to Santa project. This year there are new incentives for classrooms to participate.
Children from Wichita and the surrounding areas are invited to drop off their letters to Santa at six locations, including CityArts, Cowtown, Century II and Mid-America All-Indian Center.
Every child who participates will receive a reply from Santa himself and be entered into prize drawings. The two grand prizes are a guest appearance on KAKE News and a ride on a Wichita Fire Department fire truck.
Teachers may deliver their students’ letters at any drop-off location in a large envelope with their school’s name on the outside. Classroom prizes include a pizza party and a field trip. Class letters are due by December 4. Individual letters can be mailed through December 12. The program is for children 12 and under.
