For the 2019 Christmas Season, Santa’s Workshop will be located at 464 Puntledge Rd., which is the same location as it was last season. It’s the former Red Cross building. Hours of operation will be 10 a.m.- 3 p.m., Monday-Friday.
The workshop will be open to receive both new and used gifts along with cash donations on Monday, Nov. 4. Drop-off is along the side of the building, and items will be kindly accepted by Santa’s elves. So now is the time to start searching your homes for gently used items that can be cleaned and refurbished and given to a child this Christmas.
Our precious world is all about reducing, reusing and recycling these days, so let’s challenge ourselves and make a difference – a child will thank you for your efforts.
Appointments can be made to “shop” for a child or grandchild. Call the workshop from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday to Friday at 250-897-0098 starting Monday, Nov. 4. Actual “shopping days” are from Dec. 2-20.
The last day for the workshop to accept used toy donations will be Dec. 12, as it takes time to clean, fix and process these items. Grandparents’ shopping day is set for Dec. 17.
Drop-boxes will be located at several locations around the Comox Valley – these locations will be confirmed in early November.
Santa’s elves are excited and ready to get busy again, so let’s give them lots to do. (They do have fun with some of the toys.)
Santa’s Workshop thanks you in advance for your kindness this Christmas season.
