Santa’s Workshop shelves need filling

Santa’s Workshop is a bit behind schedule in regards to donations for the 2015 Christmas season.

“Our shelves are looking a little bare, and we are really needing used toy donations,” said spokesperson Barb Metheral. “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.

In Courtenay: Courtenay  Curves, Courtenay Museum, Driftwood Mall, Dairy Queen, Fabricland, Habitat for Humanity, London Drugs, Mountain Ridge Tree Farm, Shoppers Drug Mart, VI Fitness and Island Honda.

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

In Cumberland: Cumberland Health Centre 2596 Windermere.

“The elves at Santa’s Workshop are grateful to the Comox Valley community for all their enthusiasm and assistance in the past and look forward to another bright and shiny season this year,” said Metheral.

 

Santa’s Workshop 2015 is located at 150 Mansfield Dr. in Courtenay, beside the Whistle Stop Pub. It is open weekdays from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Call 250-897-1994 to make appointments.
