Your help is helping to make a better Christmas in the Cowichan Valley for those in need.

Our organization is 100% volunteer-operated. 


And all the way along, we have had some amazing Elves. Elves have come, and Elves have gone, and yes, a few have been here all 13 years.

Here are a few of us see in the picture from left, Elf Brenda Burch, Elf Leigh from Mid Island Ink Depot, Elf Tina from A Memorable Gift guest Elves Jan and Bruce, Elf Darlene from The Coaching Suite, Elf Debbie from DEConsulting, SEO Services and guest Elf Kerri Lynn. Other Elves, Lorraine Keen and Evelyn Gates from Farm Table Inn and Visual Edge Graphic Design were busy doing Elfish things. And whose in front? Well, it's Elf Pauline from Pauline Dueck, Artist!

Toys, Toiletries & Toques (TTT) is celebrating its 13th year of providing new, non-food items to those in need in the Cowichan Valley.  Every nickel collected and every merchandise item or ticket purchased using donated funds goes 100% to those needing a boost at Christmas.


Most original core volunteers are back for our 13th year 2023 edition;

The TTT will run from October 15th to November 29th, 2023.


We started as members of the Cowichan Valley Social Media Club. The club felt few organizations were collecting new, non-food items for the Cowichan Valley Food Banks. 


We collect and donate everything from toothpaste, shaving cream, scarves, socks, and toys. We have grown from filling an SUV to filling a large cube van!
