How to request gifts for your family:
Everyone needs a hand every now and then. If your family could use assistance this holiday season, follow the instructions below so Globe Santa can help.
Globe Santa does not accept family letters without a holiday gift verification form.

1. Tell us your story. Write a letter to Globe Santa describing your situation or telling us why you’re seeking holiday gifts for your children. Do not include a wish list or gift ideas.
2. Finish your forms. Complete and sign your Holiday Gift Verification Form from the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) or another approved agency.
3. Check envelope contents. Before you send your request, confirm your family letter and verification form are included in the envelope. Letters received without a verification form cannot be processed!
4. Mail your request. Send your letter and completed verification form to the following address by November 22nd:
300 Constitution Drive

• Your agency contact will complete and sign the verification form as a sponsor for your family.
• Your form includes your current address and lists all eligible children in your household. Verify this information, but do not cross out or write in edits. If you need to edit information about your address or children, contact your agency.
• You must include this form with your family letter to be eligible for gifts.
