Santa’s Express Mailbox available Nov. 25

Nutley Mayor Joanne Cocchiola recently announced her plans to once again collect letters written to Santa by children in the township and forward them directly to Santa Claus in the North Pole.

Now in its sixth year, the special Santa Express Mailbox will be placed at the Nutley Park Oval entrance on Chestnut Street where children can deliver their letters starting on Friday, Nov. 25, in conjunction with Santa’s Arrival in the Oval, which is sponsored by the Nutley Chamber of Commerce.  The last day of collection will be Tuesday, Dec. 20, allowing Santa enough time to respond to each letter by Christmas.

Parents are asked to please remember to have children include their age and return address on each letter to Santa.  The address is really important since Santa doesn’t always have the luxury of time to look up addresses during the busy holiday season.

For more information, please contact Kim Russomanno at 973-284-4976, or  Remember to for the latest on township news, programs and events.
