The Elves’ workshop is in full swing!

For many of us, Christmas means family reunions, gifts, good food, enjoyable evenings and seeing the wonder in children’s eyes. Yet, as the holidays near, some families know a completely different reality.

For 27 years, Valoris has been celebrating the magic of Christmas by offering gifts to children in need in the Prescott-Russell area. The ultimate goal of the Christmas Elves Campaign is to place a gift under every child and teen’s Christmas tree.

Christmas trees are up in all Valoris service centres, as well as in several businesses across Prescott-Russell. Simply choose a Christmas Elf with the name of a child/teenager and return a gift under the tree before December 5. New items (gift certificates, games, toys, clothing, books, etc.) or cash donations can also be dropped off at Valoris service centres.

For more information, please call Valoris at 1-800-675-6168. For a complete list of businesses in the region where you can find elves, visit: www.valorispr.ca
