North Tonawanda Youth Center


Letters to Santa

Opens Friday, December 3.

Mailbox Location:

Inside the NT Botanical Gardens

(See map below)

Santa heard that our Youth Center was closed this year and has offered to send us an official North Pole outdoor mailbox to ensure the children of North Tonawanda can get their letters to him on time. (See the letter we received from Santa himself below. 

The mailbox is being dropped off by his elves on Wednesday, December 9 and will be ready to start accepting your letters by 4pm. 

Santa has told us that he loves to get letters from all the good boys and girls and even makes the time to write back. 

If you'd like to receive a letter from Santa, please make sure letters include:

  •  Child’s name
  •  Child’s age
  •  Child’s address so Santa knows where to mail his response.

The rest is up to your child. They can write whatever else they want to tell Santa, maybe draw him a picture, say hi to his elves and reindeer and even ask how Mrs. Claus is doing. 

For more info, call Michelle at 695-8520 ext. 5510 or email at

Mailing times will be anytime between 9AM and 9PM between December 3 and December 21. 

We look forward to helping your child get their letter to Santa on time!

The mailbox will be located over by the greenhouse. (See map below) 

You will pull in off of Sweeney Street through the main entrance and go over toward the greenhouse on the left. You'll see the display set up at the near corner of the greenhouse. 

Feel free to park in front of the mailbox so the kiddos don't have to walk far out in the cold. We only ask that you pull your car over toward the left side of the road so other cars can get by you on the right, if need be.
