Want to Donate Your Used Sports Gear?

Starting October 1st, 2022, Sports Junkies will be joining forces with Nature Trust of BC. We will be looking for people who would like to donate all their gear or maybe just one of the items they were thinking of selling instead of taking cash. Once the gear is donated, it will be marked and put on the floor with a special yellow tag.
