Regional hampers include West Shore

Despite rumours to the contrary, toys donated through C-FAX Santas Anonymous help families on the West Shore.

Despite rumours to the contrary, toys donated through C-FAX Santas Anonymous help families on the West Shore, though it’s been a different format the past few years.

“We haven’t received any toys from Santas Anonymous since 2009. But they also help out West Shore families,” said Gayle Ireland, president of West Shore Christmas Hamper Fund.  Families across Greater Victoria can apply for hampers through various organizations, including Santas and the West Shore hamper fund.

“We serve a great deal of people on the West Shore. Our focus is families,” said Elaine Greenway, executive assistant for C-FAX Santas Anonymous. The organization is set up at Westshore Town Centre where people can donate toys.

West Shore Rotary and the South Vancouver Island Rangers Club are among the groups providing toys for the West Shore fund.

Drop donations at the West Shore hamper office, 761 Station Ave. Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
