A location has been secured for the 2013 Santa’s Workshop season at 877 Fifth St. in Courtenay.

This is the same location that housed the Workshop in 2012.

Hours will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday. The workshop will be up and running Nov. 4 to receive appointment bookings.

Call 250-897-1994 to make appointments for shopping. Gift donations (new and used) will be accepted from Nov. 4 and onwards.

Volunteers are needed for bikes, electronics, little dolls-ie Brats, Polly Pockets, My Little Ponies, puzzles and games.

This year, Dec. 13 will be the last day for accepting used toy donations.

There will be a dropbox at the Fifth Street location and drop boxes will also be at other locations, which will soon be announced.

Santa’s Elves are looking forward to another exciting and successful season, so start now by cleaning out your used toys and other items we can use at the workshop … the earlier we receive used items, the better.
