Donor of the month
Our newest donors of the month are Dylan & Brooke from Huband Elementary. Here is a sample letter sent out to the community from them:
We are two students in grade 5 from Huband Park that are collecting used sports equipment. The items you donate will go to Blue Toque and be sold as second hand sports gear. All money from these sales will help buy equipment for local kids (through KidSport Comox Valley). KidSport pays up to $300 for registration of a sport, but local kids (and parents) often still can’t afford the gear to play a sport of their choice.
We raised over $240 last year for KidSport and wanted to do more this year for this great organization. We went to an executive meeting and presented our plan. KidSport fully endorsed and welcomed us.
We realize that we are very fortunate to be able to participate in the sports we love and choose. Raising money from second hand sports gear is a way we can help other kids in our community.Together, we are building a strong community.
The organization will call us to pick up your donations from your house and we will get them to Blue Toque. You can also drop the equipment off yourself at Blue Toque, 120 B 5th Street, Courtenay. Tell them you want the equipment donated to KidSport.
Thank you for your time and consideration. You can contact Kidsport at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 250-338-7714. Mr. Perich is a teacher at Huband and the Chairperson of KidSport Comox Valley.
Sincerely, Dylan & Brooke, Huband Elementary
