Jumpstart helps local children- Winkler
July 10, 2018
WINKLER – Close to 2,000 children in the Pembina Valley have already benefitted from the Jumpstart program, and Winkler Canadian Tire Owner David Dunseath is hoping for community support once again.
If you look at statistics, children who are involved in sport and recreation at a young age, later in life there’s a greater propensity they’re going to go on to post-secondary education, a greater propensity that their marriages are going to stay together,
People can donate to the cause at the till at Canadian Tire or Marks.
