Gift giveaway part of annual project to spread holiday cheer
The City of Wichita, Cambridge Market and Starkey, Inc., are teaming up with the North Pole to collect letters for Santa and give away early Christmas presents that include a ride on a Wichita fire truck.
In its third year, the Letters to Santa Project allows the City and its partners to spread a little holiday cheer. More than 500 letters were received last year.
From now through Dec. 14, children ages 12 and under are invited to drop off their letters at the following locations:
- Century II (Concert hall entrance)
225 W. Douglas
334 N. Mead in Old Town Square
- Mid-America All-Indian Center
650 N. Seneca
- Old Cowtown Museum
1865 W. Museum Blvd.
- Cambridge Market
9747 East 21st Street North
- Starkey, Inc.
4500 W. Maple
Children who include a return address on their letter will also receive a response from Santa Claus himself!
All kids who participate will be automatically entered in the gift giveway. One grand prize winner will be selected to receive a ride on a Wichita fire truck. Other prizes include a free youth art class at CityArts, family memberships to Cowtown and the Indian Center, a gift certificate for an upcoming performance at Century II and $50 in Cambridge Market Bucks.
