LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The United States Postal Service will begin its annual Operation Santa program on Tuesday, which ensures letters from kids in need to Santa Claus get answered.
Officials said many of the letters to Old St. Nick ask for simple things like warm clothing, toys or food.
Nonprofit organization "Be an Elf" is helping raise awareness of the campaign and recruit volunteers.
