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

While you are here, we have a small ask.
More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop. But advertising revenues are increasingly going to the big two: you know who they are. If you value The Review’s independent, local community journalism, or you value the many ways we support dozens of community organizations in their endeavours, consider supporting our work. It takes time, effort and professional smarts to stay on top of community news and present well-researched, objective news articles on issues which matter to you.
If you read stories on this website, or you have come here from an Instant Article post on Facebook, think about subscribing. It would be a vote of confidence for the work that we do, and for the future well-being of your community.
