JumpCamp Snowboard Drive returns

Gear drive ongoing until February 23

It’s once again time for JumpCamp’s annual snowboard gear 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.

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. “Last year we were able to donate 10 boards and lots of gear to the John Howard Society for their youth programs. This year we want to double that!”

Gear can be dropped off at the front desk of the Lewis Centre at 489 Old Island Highway, or call Patrick 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 year. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
