Canadian Tire in Minden had a successful Jumpstart Day. Co-owner Leanne McLean says the turnout was more than they were expecting.

The day was dedicated to raising awareness for the Jumpstart program. All the money raised from the red ball campaign will go to local community needs.

The Jumpstart program provides funding to youth who’s parents are unable to afford recreational sports.

Anyone wishing to apply can go to the Canadian Tire, or Point in Time.
