Elevate Trampoline Park, 2920 S. Zero St., will donate a portion of every ticket sold for its jumping, paint ball, laser tag and ninja courses through the end of this year to Riverview Hope Campus in Fort Smith, according to a recent news release from Riverview Hope Campus.
The family of Josh Niles, owner of Elevate Trampoline Park, spent some time homeless during Niles' childhood, so the mission of Hope Campus, to combat poverty in the region, is an important one to him, according to the release.
" ... I think it is our job as a community to watch out for each other," Niles says in the release. "Sometimes the public needs to step up and meet the need."
The Hope Campus tries to improve the community by providing shelter, food, medical services, GED classes, job training and other necessities to people in need in the area.
"I am humbled and honored Elevate has chosen us as a recipient of their fundraiser," says Chris Joannides, executive director of Riverview Hope Campus, in the release.
