Salmon Arm Secondary Jewels need help getting to Hawaii

The soccer team is doing a bottle drive to finish off their fundraising to cover travel costs

The team will be picking up bottles in Salmon Arm and the Blind Bay and White Lake areas from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Jan. 5. Bottles can also be dropped off at Action Safety Service located at 416 4th St. NE in Salmon Arm on Jan. 4 0r 5.

The bottle drive is one of several fundraisers the soccer team has done to pay for the trip to Hawaii. They will depart on March 21 and return on March 30. The team has also run the concession at a youth soccer tournament, put on a garage sale and barbecue, sold Purdy’s chocolate bars and run a soccer skills and drills clinic to help pay for the trip.

For more information or to arrange pickup of bottles, call Kim at 250-574-3866.
