During July, Santa’s Letters, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to change the world one letter at a time, is collecting items to be distributed to families in need throughout Sussex County.
Partnering with the organization’s presenting sponsor Kristina’s Kitchen, Santa’s Letters is collecting nonperishable food donations which can be dropped off at the popular breakfast and lunch spot at 35581 Atlantic Ave., Millville.
Every person who donates may complete a raffle entry slip for a chance to win a gift basket filled with local items.
Santa’s Letters was founded in 2013 by Sean and Kristina Malone, who wanted to find a unique and upbeat way to give back to their community. Sean worked for the U.S. Postal Service and started answering letters to Santa. During this process, he realized many children were asking for basic needs such as clothing and food. That’s when the idea took form, and now the organization is supporting hundreds of families every year.
Kristina and Sean believe the magic of Christmas still exists in everyone, so they try to spread joy and goodwill year-round.
