Kids raise money for Cops For Kids

Aven Steffler and her brother Che embarked on a summer project to raise money and awareness for children in need.

Aven Steffler (right) and her brother Che (left), with encouragement from their mother (the local BC Sheriff) embarked on a summer project to raise money and awareness for children in need in our community.

Through an ongoing bottle drive advertised primarily by word of mouth and a sign on their fence, the pair set out with a lofty goal of raising $2,015 to present to two local sheriff’s deputies, Mike Kosof (pictured) and Robert Crowder, as they cycle through Nelson on Sept. 14 with 25 other southeast interior law enforcement officers in the annual Cops For Kids charity ride.

The kids have almost met their goal and are inviting Nelsonites to support this worthy cause by dropping off refundable bottles and cans at the parking lot across from the Nelson airport this Saturday, where Giveitback.ca Recycling has joined the kids in collecting for this fundraiser.
