Sports equipment drive boosts Halton CAS, First Nations youth

The Winch Group is kicking off hockey season with its eighth Annual Community Sports Equipment Drive.

The initiative, which supports First Nations youth and the Halton Children’s Aid Society, collects gently-used sporting equipment that is distributed to young people in need. Last year, items were packed into OPP trailers and transported to Wasauksing First Nation in Parry Sound, as well as Shawanaga First Nation, Henvey Inlet First Nation, and Magnetawan First Nation. Gear was also flown into Neskantaga First Nation.

Organizers are looking for hockey gear, bicycles, and other athletic items. They can be dropped off at the Mainway Recreation Centre parking lot at 4015 Mainway (east of Walkers Line) in Burlington on Saturday, Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For more information about the equipment drive, email Lindsay Webb at l.webb@swinchgroup.com or visit www.winchgroup.com/community-outreach.
