Waste Nothing

Skate to Great logo

Skate To Great is a charity which enables deserving kids and at-risk youth the opportunity to skate, by providing skates and other equipment to charities, schools and community programs.

To donate, bring usable skates and hockey equipment to your nearest Play It Again Sports location, listed here. Let them know that you wish to donate your credit to Skate To Great. Skate to Great can then re-purchase skates from Play It Again Sports using those credits, buying the sizes they need in the locations they need. See details about how that works.

Send a photo of your receipt to Skate To Great if you want a tax receipt for it. Note that some Play It Again Sports employees may be unaware of the partnership with Skate to Great, so you may want to call ahead of time to let them know.

There are also a handful of StorageMart locations which accept donations for Skate To Great.

This applies to Hockey sticks, Ice skates, and Hockey pads and helmets.
