Food/School Supplies/Hygiene Product Drive

Hello everyone,

 

We hope that everyone is doing well. We are excited to announce our next event: the Food/School Supplies/Hygiene Product Drive! 

 

For this event, we are asking that some skaters purchase the items/bring them to the San Jose skating rink to be collected and that others bring the collected items to Sacred Heart, which is near the San Jose rink. You are also welcome to do both! 

The address to Sacred Heart:

1381 S 1st St, San Jose, CA 95110

 

If you are purchasing food, it would need to be non-perishable and preferably canned food. Hygiene products would include items such as new toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, handsoap, diapers, masks etc. For school supplies, Sacred Heart has a list of items that you can donate here:

https://sacredheartcs.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/PAB-2020-Supply-list.pdf

 

We will be giving 4 volunteer hours & 24 points for purchasing items, and 4 volunteer hours & 24 points for collecting & dropping off the items. Make sure to keep in mind that volunteer points are important because we will be considering them for the next officer election.

(It has been a long time since we used the point system. Basically, each time a skater participates in an event, they get a certain amount of points, and the Junior Board Officers are keeping track of the points for each member.)

 

If you would like to take part in this event, please fill out this google form: 

We will communicate again with interested volunteers in regards to specific drop off and pick up dates. 

 

Please email us if you have any questions :)

 

Thank you,

PSC Junior Board Officers

Shelter In Place Reflection

 

Dear Junior Board members:

We are super excited that the rinks in the Bay Area have reopened. Were you able to get a spot? How did it feel to be on ice again? Can you still do your jumps and spins? 

 

The Junior Board would like to do an online reflection of skaters' lives during SIP. We want to hear your stories of SIP, whether it's about off-ice training, or any new hobby you developed, or a virtual party you had, or anyone you have helped during SIP, and most importantly, how you felt during SIP. Were you incredibly bothered by the physical isolation? Or the despair of not being able to frequently leave your house? Or did you instead feel peaceful and comfortable in the safety of home?

 

We are also curious to hear: how do you feel of being able to reunite perhaps in person with your beloved coaches? How do you feel being able to get back on the ice which you have been separated from for months now? To be able to come back after perhaps the longest time you’ve ever spent away from the sport?

 

Please send your stories, photos, or video clips to peninsulajuniorboard@gmail.com before Aug 15th. There is no word count limit. This is one of the most unique experiences we have ever had, so please use this opportunity to record your reflections and thoughts! We will publish your stories on JB's website and Instagram to share with skaters all around the world. You will also earn points for your submissions.

 

Stay safe and healthy! Have a great summer!

T-shirt Color Announcement & Design Info

 

Hello everyone!

Thank you all who voted for your favorite T-shirt color! We are excited to announce that this year's color will be navy blue. Everyone who voted has received one point! 

 

Now that the color is chosen, it is time for you to come up with a design for our T-shirt! Each skater may turn in more than one design if they'd like. The first design will earn you 10 points; however, you will only receive 2 points each for your other designs. And... the winner will receive 15 points!!!

 

If you would like to turn in a design, send a picture of your design to the PSC Junior Board email. The deadline for turning in your design(s) is August 15. After gathering all our designs, we will be voting for the best design. 

 

Thank you,

PSC Junior Board Officers

2020 Junior Board T-shirt Design

 

Hello everyone!

Since the new season has started, it is also time to design a new T-shirt! This year, we have made slight changes to the system to make it more engaging and fun for you!

 

First thing’s first. We have to come up with a color for our T-shirt. We encourage everyone to vote for their favorite color because not only will it increase the chance of getting your preferred color but it will also help you earn points!

 

This year we have decided to add in a Point System. Whenever you participate in an event (small or big), you will receive some points. By voting for this year's T-shirt color, you can earn some points too! More points means that you have participated in many events!

 

Even with the hard situation that we are in right now, we hope to keep the Junior Board enjoyable and engaging!!!

 

Thank you.

Covid19 Relief Volunteer Project

 

Since we’re all stuck in the house during shelter in place, we came up with a fun way for you to contribute to Covid19 relief efforts: making face masks and face shields for healthcare workers and for our community. 

Both homemade face shields and masks are accepted by doctors and nurses who are in great need of these protective gear. Right now, we’re collecting face masks/shields to donate to hospitals (Kaiser San Jose, Kaiser Fremont, El Camino Hospital, etc.) and Senior Care Centers. Once you have made 10+ masks, you can drop them off (NO CONTACT) to Alice (in San Jose) or a skater in Fremont, and we will send  them to doctors and nurses in Kaiser and other hospitals. We also accept surgical masks, n95 masks, disinfectant wipes, and hand sanitizer for donation. 

 

Please send photos or videos of you masking the masks, so we can post them on instagram and our website to spread awareness and motivation for this event!

 

We really hope that you can participate in this event and that you will enjoy creating personal protection equipment for our hardworking hospital staff who are risking their lives to save the lives of others. 

Please see our homemade face shields and masks donated to local hospitals
