Clear the closet to help kids play sports

Closet cluttered with skates? Tired of shovelling shin pads out of your way?

KidSport New West is accepting donations of used sporting equipment that will be sold at its third annual sale Sunday, March 9 at the River Market.

KidSport helps kids play organized sports by providing grants of up to $200 to help those with financial obstacles register for team or individual sports. Since it was established in 1993, it has spread to 150 chapters across Canada and allowed more than 45,000 kids participate in 65 different sports.

Equipment for the sale can be dropped off at the River Market's administration office, Barley's Homebrewing Supplies at 101-455 East Columbia and Key West Ford at 301 Stewardson Way.

The sale runs from 12-3 p.m.
