FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, June 4th
WEST KELOWNA, B.C. – The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club and Pizza Moreh are excited to announce they will be hosting a community charitable bottle drive Saturday, June 13th. All proceeds of the bottle drive will go towards KidSport West Kelowna.
The Warriors will hold 4 different West Kelowna neighborhood drop off locations for cans and bottles. Anyone that drops off cans and/or bottles will receive a ticket voucher to a future Warriors game of your choice. “This is a very important cause right now as family discretionary income will be limited this year”, said Warriors President Chris Laurie. “If you have empties kicking around, please help by bringing them to the drop locations in your neighborhood and we’ll do the rest. We’d like to raise over $5,000 for KidSport West Kelowna”.
Kevin Bourchier, Supervisor of Recreation with the City of West Kelowna issued the following statement. “West Kelowna KidSport provides opportunities for children and youth ages 4-18 years to take part in a season of local sport. The West Kelowna chapter in particular serves children and youth living in West Kelowna. Westbank First Nation and Peachland families can receive up to $200.00 per child to help cover registration fees for local sport programs. Local funding support is needed to keep our KidSport chapter operating. Every dollar of KidSport funding goes to children and youth in our community”.
The bottle drive takes place Saturday June 13th from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Below is the list of drop off locations:
Lakeview Heights – Issler Park, 2440 Crestview Rd
