Christmas is coming so it’s time for JumpCamp’s annual Snowboard Drive.

“Just like a toy drive we’re collecting 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.

“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. “Last year we were able to donate ten boards and lots of gear to the John Howard Society for their youth programs. This year we want to double that!”

“The JumpCamp Snowboard Drive works with many local organizations and businesses to make this happen but we depend on the generosity of the people in the Comox Valley to make donations,” he added.

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

You can also donate your refundable empties at the bottle depot to account “JumpCamp” # 554 to support the JumpCamp Snowboard Drive.

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 year.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

The drive will run from Nov.12 toDec.18.
