CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Elves are going digital this year for the U.S.Postal Service's annual Operation Santa.

That's the 108-year-old program that fulfills wish lists for families and children in need.

But due to COVID-19, the program is going virtual this year.

For the first time, gift-givers can adopt families online.

The postal service says the new system will let them reach more children across the country.

Kids can address their letters and lists to Santa at 123 Elf Road, North Pole, 88888.

Helpful "elves" fulfilling the wish lists can pick up a letter from any city in the country.

The gifts are also tax deductible.
