Elves secure seasonal home

The elves have secured a suitable location to call ‘home’ for the 2011 Christmas season.

The elves have secured a suitable location to call ‘home’ for the 2011 Christmas season.

The building is located at 96-1742 Cliffe Ave. — on the lower level and behind Pizza Hut and St. John Ambulance. It is on the bottom floor and faces Riverside Lane and the Old House Restaurant.

The society will move in soon to start with cleaning, repairing and packaging of new and gently used toys that will be given as gifts to many children of the Comox Valley.

The phone number will remain the same 250-897-1994, and became operational Nov. 3.

Santa appreciates the many donations that the Comox Valley community has provided the workshop in the past. Please remember that if bringing in used items, Santa can only ‘fix’ what is ‘fixable’ and sometimes an item cannot be cleaned well enough.

There will be a drop box at the workshop location that faces Riverside Lane. Drop boxes will also be delivered to several other locations — soon to be announced.

Santa’s elves will be busy working at the new location Mondays to Fridays from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The workshop ‘moved in’ this week and is now open to accept donations.
