Gathering Place Tely 10 Sneaker Drive

The Gathering Place has a huge demand for sneakers this time of year as their guests walk everywhere and need to replace their footwear quite often. We all have a pair sitting in the closet that we don't really need!

Please bring that gently-user pair of sneakers to the Tely 10 race kit pick-up this week so they can be passed on to these members of our community that REALLY need them!

Kit pickup sessions are at the St. John's Curling Club on Mayor Avenue at the following times:
  • Thursday 7pm - 8:30pm
  • Friday 11am - 2pm and 4pm - 7pm
  • Saturday 2pm - 5pm
