I’ve always liked FedEX ,ever since watching Tom Hanks in the Movie , “Castaway”. Today , FedEx announced their Skate To Great , National skate and equipment drive . Every Spring “ Skate To Great” travels across Canada , asking us to get started on our spring cleaning , by donating new and used skates and equipment in support of local youth programs. Drop-offs welcomed at their FedEx office,1950 Sargent Avenue , until May 31st.
FedEx then gathers and ships all of the collected equipment to Skate To Great’s facility where among other things new laces are installed and equipment is freshened up. Skate To Great and FedEx then work together to distribute equipment to various schools, youth programs and charities in need.
Since 2012 , Skate To Great has collected over 4,000 pairs of skates in Winnipeg alone ; (25,000 in Canada) and have helped to support organizations such as Big Brother Big Sisters Canada, Hockey 4 Youth, HEROS, as well as a number of school boards. Let’s help spread the word…Here’s a link…ttp://skatetogreat.org/news/fedextour/……or…. http://youtu.be/LWz3zkeudhM. Thanks for helping the kids.
