Santa’s Workshop set to open

  • Oct. 28, 2015 10:00 a.m.

Santa’s Workshop has its location and is set to receive new and used toys, to be distributed to less fortunate Comox Valley families this Christmas.

For the 2015 Christmas season, Santa’s Workshop will be located at 150 Mansfield Dr. in Courtenay (next to Whistle Stop Pub).  The workshop will be open to receive new and used toys, as well as cash donations beginning Monday, Nov. 2. All donations can be dropped off at the building and will be kindly accepted by one of Santa’s elves.

Hours of operation will be 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The last day for the workshop to receive used toy donations will be Friday, Dec. 11, as it takes time to clean, fix and process these items. So start going through your inventory early if you have anything at all you’d like to donate. See santasworkshopcomoxvalley.com for additional information.

Once the toys are ready for distribution, parents are invited to book a time for a discreet viewing/selection of the toys available.

To book an appointment, call 250-897-1994 anytime after Nov. 2.  The workshop will be booking appointments from Nov. 30  until Dec. 22.

“Santa’s Workshop is grateful to the Comox Valley community for all their generosity in past years,” said spokesperson Barb Metheral. “Let’s all help make this another very successful season.”
