Other Elves Lorraine from My Great Housekeeper and Evelyn Koops 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!

Our organization is 100% volunteer-operated. 

 

Toys, Toiletries & Toques (TTT) is celebrating its 11th 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 is going 100% to those that need a boost at Christmas.

 

Most of the original core volunteers are back for this 12th year. 

 

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 -especially toys. We have grown from filling an SUV to filling a large cube van!
