The best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

Letters to Santa

In partnership with Toys R Us, the City of Sarnia and the Seaway Kiwanis Club present “Letters to Santa”.  As of Sunday, November 15, a special holiday mailbox will be stationed at Toys R Us in Lambton Mall until Saturday, December 5. During this time, children can drop off letters to Santa that will be mailed to the North Pole! Need help writing a letter? Use our template, below!
