The Salmon Arm Jewels Senior Girls Soccer Team needs some help getting away to show off their soccer skills in a warmer climate. The team has been working hard for months fundraising for the trip and is now gearing up for the final fundraiser, a bottle drive on Saturday, Jan. 5.
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.
