Island Hearts of Hope was started in August of 2017 By Shellie Yates Smyrichinsky, Deb Muckle & Tamara Meggitt as a way to show their support to families during the fires that hit so hard that year. Since then we have grown and welcome Sumiko Playfair as well as Arielle Muckle to the team. Island Hearts of Hope assists with various projects within our community. This year, it was brought to our attention that due to COVID-19, Santas Workshop, which began in 1958 as well as Secret Santa which has been helping with toys for approx 20 years will not be able to run their programs. Knowing how much they have supported families over the years,( over 1000 children last year alone ) We knew that this would mean a lot of children left without Christmas Especially with the current global pandemic. We are pleased to be able to step in and help fill the gap. This however will take a true community to make it happen so that we will be able to collect and deliver gifts to families in need in a COVID safe manner. Although this year will look very different from the years past, from the work that both Santas Workshop as well as Secret Santa have done, we hope that our efforts, along with the community, we will bring Christmas toys to the kids of the Comox Valley.
