Dear Neighbors,

The members of the Oceanport Hook & Ladder have been helping Santa deliver gifts on the fire trucks of Oceanport for many decades. We will once again escort Santa this Christmas Morning. If you would like Santa to deliver a gift for your child or special someone, please fill out the online registration here

Gifts must be wrapped and placed in a GIFT BAG or OTHER CLOTH BAG that is clearly marked with your last name, the address for the gifts to be delivered, and the children’s or special someone’s names. We ask that each gift is marked with the child’s or special someone’s name as well and that the labels are securely attached and readable. Gifts must be dropped off to the Oceanport Hook & Ladder Firehouse on Saturday, December 5th between 9AM to 12PM, Saturday December 12th between 9AM to 12PM. We ask for a donation of $5 a gift.

Santa and his elves will deliver the gifts to your child/children or special someone Christmas Morning on the fire truck between the hours of 7am and 11am. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of requests, we are unable to guarantee a certain time of arrival. We will deliver to any age person.

You are receiving this letter because you have asked Santa to come on the fire truck in prior years. We are going to an online system, so it is very important for you to register online and provide a valid email address. Registration will begin on the November 29th and continue through December 12th. The cutoff for gift drop-offs will be December 12th. Please contact me for any drops after December 12th.

Please fill out the online registration on our website here

If you have any questions, please email OceanportSantaRun@gmail.com or call 732-542-6928.
