Chrissy Frey takes a photo of Henry Spillman at the delivery of Santa’s Mailbox to the home of Kristina and Sean Malone on Saturday, Nov. 14. The Malones started Santa’s Letters three years ago as a way to help area children communicate with Santa and to help families in need. In the background, visitors check out the newest addition to the Malone’s holiday display — a special window that allows a ‘live’ peep at Santa’s workshop.

For the third year in a row, Santa’s Mailbox has been delivered to the Dagsboro home of Kristina and Sean Malone. Santa himself paid a visit to the home of the Santa’s Letters campaign, along with dozens of family and friends, to kick off the family’s annual effort, which includes letters to local children, as well as help for families in need.

This year, Sean Malone, a former postal service employee himself, has added even more to the holiday display in the family’s yard. He said he is particularly proud of the new window in one of the structures that gives visitors a “live” peep into Santa’s workshop.

Letters delivered to the mailbox, located at 2 Windward Way, Dagsboro, will be answered if delivered by Dec. 22. Letters can either be dropped off in person, or they can be mailed to the 2 Windward Way address and the Malones will make sure they get into the special Santa’s Mailbox. Either way, they must include a return address.
