Opening the Door
In a recent Aspen Institute survey, skateboarding was found to be the third least expensive of 21 athletic activities evaluated, with 38% of parents reporting no annual associated costs. Still, the initial cost of new skate equipment can put quality gear out-of-reach for many kids. Our gear giveaway programs provide professional equipment to children in need, opening the door to kids who need it the most.
Our primary giveaway programs are Skateboard Angel, Boards for the Barrio, and Rides for the Res. Each project within these programs is custom-designed based on community needs. In addition to skateboards, we have also given away shoes, clothes, helmets, ramps and other props!
