Westshore Donation Drop-off at Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre
April 7, 2022: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DONATE ITEMS TO BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS AT JUAN DE FUCA RECREATION
Drop Off at the BIG Truck in the Parking Lot on Saturday, April 8
Victoria, B.C. – Clean out that cluttered closet and make a difference in the community by donating clothing and household items at the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre on Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria Capital Region (BBBSV) team will be collecting items – look for the BIG truck in the parking lot! All donated items are put to best use by the charity to support local families in need and fund mentoring programs for vulnerable youth.
Accepted items include new or good condition used clothing, fabric items, antiques and collectibles, small appliances, small furniture, home décor, electronics and artwork. Please ensure all items are clean and can be carried by one person.
Demand for mentoring services in the Westshore has never been higher. Many of the children and youth on BBBSV’s waitlist in need of a volunteer mentor are living in the Westshore or Sooke areas. Your donations will support the growth of mentoring programs in the Westshore to meet the needs of local families.
Have some spare time and want to make a big difference in the life of a child in your community? BBBSV needs volunteer mentors in the Westshore to spend a few hours each week at school or in the community connecting with a young person. To learn more about volunteering, visit the BBBSV website or ask the team on April 8 for more information.
Come out to the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre this Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to pass on those items you no longer need and support your local Westshore community!
