JumpCamp hosts snowboard gear drive

JumpCamp, Vancouver Island’s Premier Snowboard Camp, is hosting a snowboard gear drive this year.

“Just like a toy drive we are going to collect snowboards, boots, jackets and pants to be distributed to less fortunate youth and families in the Comox Valley,” said JumpCamp owner and operator Patrick Kitto.

JumpCamp is a registered non-profit organization that supports youth and works alongside companies with the same ideals.

“At JumpCamp we understand that snowboarding can be an expensive sport and we want to provide as much help to get kids involved,” Kitto said.

Gear can be dropped off at the front desk of the Lewis Centre at 489 Old Island Highway, or call Kitto at (250) 792-2896 for pickup.

So get that old board out of the closet and gear out of the back shed and make a difference in a youth’s life this Christmas. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

The drive will continue until Jan. 1.
