Slam dunk for Surrey Christmas Bureau

Nov. 28 event at Kwantlen Park Secondary is all about basketball and charity.

The Surrey Christmas Bureau (SCB) is inviting the public to be a part of its “Jingle Hoops” event on Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kwantlen Park Secondary (10441 132 St.).

Jingle Hoops is an all-inclusive, all ages, fun day of basketball where anything basketball-related goes

The goal of the event is to engage the community and offer a fun, community-bonding outlet where individuals can be united by their love of basketball and sport – all while supporting children and families in the community of Surrey.

Many schools and recreational groups are already on board helping to get players of all ages and abilities out to this event – especially the Kwantlen Park Leos and Kwantlen Park Leadership class.

As well, SEMO Foundation is doing a tournament within Jingle Hoops to raise awareness and funds for the SCB’s Toy Depot and Christmas Hamper Program.

The day will be filled with activities, a barbecue, concession, toy drive and lots of basketball fun. Those coming are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy or cash donation for the SCB.

Each year, the SCB helps hundreds of Surrey families provide a Christmas for their loved ones that they might otherwise be unable to afford.

If you are interested in getting your group involved and making spirits bright, give the Surrey Christmas Bureau a call at 604-581-9623.

Registration for assistance from the SCB this year began Nov. 18. The location is 14885 108 Ave..
