Santa's Workshop up and running in Courtenay

Santa's Workshop is up and running and is open for used toy donations, cash donations and bicycles.

The new location this year is 877 Fifth St. in Courtenay. The hours of operation are 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. from Mondays to Fridays.   Please look through your 'old' inventory and bring it down to the workshop. The elves fix and repair almost everything that comes in.

There are now drop boxes placed at the following locations:

• Walmart;

• London Drugs;

• Dollarama at Driftwood Mall;

• Fabricland;

• Habitat for Humanity;

• Scotia Bank, Comox;

• Coastal Community Credit Union, Comox;

• Comox Centre Mall;

• Courtenay and District Museum;

• Curves, Courtenay.

For years, the elves at Santa's Workshop have taken donations of toys, bicycles and cash, turning them into Christmas gifts for Comox Valley children who might otherwise go without.
