Canadian Tire's Foundation for Families is hoping to give local less fortunate children a JUMPSTART in spring and summer recreation programs next year. With the help of Canadian Tire associate dealers and petroleum agents, the local Halton Hills Chapter of JUMPSTART (formed with partners from the Town of Halton Hills, Region of Halton, Georgetown Bread Basket and Optimist Club of Georgetown) is able to support children in various programs throughout the year. So far the Halton Hills Chapter has been able to help more than 90 children access activities such as soccer, baseball, hockey, outdoor programs and kung-fu. Joining the list of sponsors this year is the Men's Lacrosse pick-up league, Georgetown and Acton Soccer Clubs, Acton Minor Hockey Association and Halton Hills Minor Lacrosse. The Halton Hills JUMPSTART chapter is also encouraging community sport organizations, businesses and interested citizens to help build this fund to ensure more children experience the benefits of participating in recreation and sport. Receipts are available for contributions. If your child or a child you know could benefit from this program please fill out an application form through your child's school, online at www.haltonhills.ca, print one at www.region.halton.on.ca/scs/childrenshealth/a ctive.htm, or pick one up at Canadian Tire, 315 Guelph Street, Georgetown, L7G 4B3. Applications for the spring and summer programs will be accepted until March 31, 2007. Forms can be left at the Customer Service desk at Canadian Tire, Attention Tracey Craig. For more information please call 905-873-2601 ext. 2261.
