It might be a good time to clean out your shed or make some space in your basement.

The Voice Youth Council in Fort St. James are looking for donations of winter sporting equipment and clothing for youth and children.

The group is hoping to collect used equipment in working condition and winter clothing such as winter coats and snow pants and other essentials such as helmets to help give more children and youth the chance to play in the snow this year.

Many young people may not have the opportunity to participate in sports because their families can not afford the specialized equipment or clothing to do so, and some might just want a chance to try a sport before saving their pennies to purchase their own equipment.

Anyone in the community who has good used winter gear to donate can contact Jana Gainor, Fireweed youth coordinator, for drop off and pick up information: 996-8083.
