Integra Telecom Invites Kids to Call Santa on Dec. 10 between 9 a.m. and Noon

Prior Lake, Minn., Nov. 29, 2011 – Integra Telecom’s Prior Lake, Minn., office will host a special guest on Saturday, Dec. 10th. Santa Claus will be stopping by from 9 a.m. until noon to take phone calls from area children. Children interested in sharing their holiday wishes with Santa can call him directly at 952-447-0899 on Saturday, Dec. 10th, anytime during the three-hour period.

Children should be prepared to tell Santa if they’ve been naughty or nice. Santa will also ask each child what they’re wishing for this Christmas, while not making any promises so as to avoid spoiling the surprise.

“Santa likes to spend the weeks leading up to Christmas talking to as many children as possible. He enjoys the letters children send him and talking to kids on the phone. He hopes that lots of children will give him a call on Dec. 10th, even if they’ve written or seen him already, so he can be sure to check his list twice,” said a North Pole source who works closely with Santa.

Minnesota’s relative close proximity to the North Pole, especially considering the speed of Santa’s sleigh, makes it the perfect spot for Santa to sled in and take a few calls.

For more than 26 years, Integra Telecom Inc. and Prior Lake’s Optimists Club have partnered to bring Santa Claus to the region to take calls from local children. This year, the organizations have made six lines available for children to make their holiday requests. In 2010, Santa fielded close to 600 phone calls from area children, the majority of who claimed to have been nice.
