  • Nov. 12, 2014 3:00 p.m.

Santa’s Workshop 2014 is located at 311 4th Street in Courtenay, at the old Salvation Army building, beside the Butcher’s Block.

Hours are Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Call 250-897-1994 to make appointments.

Our shelves are looking a little bare, and we are really needing used toy donations.

So please clean out your cupboards, and bring your “gently used” toys down to the workshop.

We will gladly fix what needs fixing and clean them to get them into almost new condition.

The sooner we get used toys, the more time there is to clean and do any needed repairs.

As well, new toys and cash donations are most appreciated!

There are drop boxes located around the Comox Valley. This year, they will be at the following locations:

Courtenay – BMO, Curves, Courtenay Museum, Driftwood Mall, Dairy Queen, Fabricland, Habitat for Humanity, London Drugs, Mountain Ridge Tree Farm, Sunwest Auto Centre and Island Honda.

Comox – Coastal Community Credit Union, Comox Mall, Slegg Lumber, Scotiabank, Dr. Terry Blasco Dentist Office.

Cumberland – Cumberland Health Centre 2596 Windermere.

Santa’s Workshop thanks you in advance for your kindness this Christmas season.
