PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) — Elves are going digital this year for the U.S. Postal Service’s annual “Operation Santa,” which kicks off Monday.

The 108-year-old program fulfills wish lists for families and children in need.

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

The helpful "elves" fulfilling the wish lists can pick up a letter from any city in the country. The gifts are also tax deductible.

As a reminder, all gifts must be mailed by December 20.
