U13 Rep gives to local KidSport & NMHA!

May 18, 2021

Raffle Winners

Thanks to our U13 Rep team for their hard work and generosity!

As always, our U13 Rep team worked extremely hard on the sandbag fundraiser last season - shoveling sand, piling up hundreds of bags, taking orders and delivering sandbags all throughout the winter to gas stations from Kaslo to Nelson to Salmo to Winlaw. This year, due to no travel and Covid, the team generously decided to donate a portion of their Fundraising efforts to the community.

$1500 was donated to KidSport Nelson, which provides grants to help cover the costs of registration fees so that all kids aged 18 and under in Nelson can play a season of sport.

Another $1500 was donated to Nelson Minor Hockey specifically to put towards goalie equipment purchases.

Sending out thanks to all the local businesses that support the sandbag fundraiser every year, NRM & YRB, and all the locals that buy sandbags each winter. Huge thanks to all the U13 kids and parents for your hard, back-breaking work and your generosity - it's very much appreciated!

Raffle winners!
