Letters to Santa (Online)
Wow, Santa has asked Ms. Portia to be his personal elf this Christmas! Even though Ms. Portia is very busy, she could not tell Santa no. So, send Santa a letter by emailing portia.andrews@accgov.com. Santa will read the letters and post his response on our Facebook page in the days leading up to Christmas. Santa has to take care of a lot of good boys and girls so all letters must be received by Monday, December 12th.
