DU QUOIN (WSIL) -- With the holidays approaching, children will soon be writing letters to Santa. And the city of Du Quoin wants to help.
A Letters to Santa mailbox is set up inside Croessman Square on Main Street. Letters submitted by Friday, December 13 will each receive a return letter from Santa.
"We think it's something that the kids will remember for a long time," said Du Quoin Mayor Guy Alongi.
In order for Santa to write back, a name and address must be included in the letter.
Last year, more than 275 letters were written to Santa over 25 days.
