Throughout the month of June Weyburn’s Canadian Tire is collecting Donations for Jumpstart, a charity dedicated to helping children access sport and recreation activities.  

Canadian Tire Manager, Christina Plourde said all of the money raised stays in the community to help families put their children in sports.  

“Any activity, baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse. I even believe dance is on there. Jumpstart covers the cost for them.” 

Plourde said although Jumpstart is during the month of June, donations can be made year-round.  

“You can donate anytime, anywhere with any of our sister companies. I believe Mark’s (Work Warehouse) also has it, and you can donate at Atmosphere.”  

On top of donations being accepted online and at the tills, a fundraiser is taking place in the Canadian Tire’s parking lot on June 18.  

“We're going to have a barbecue, we're going to have a dunk tank, we're going to have some fishing for little kids, and have cotton candy, ice cream, popcorn and so much more.” 

She added they will also be having a draw to win a pool at the event.
