Please donate your old ski and snowboard clothing & gear to a good cause:

My name is Ron Schwartz, I’m preserting TGR’s Ski Film in Stockton as fundraiser to provide a ski / snowboard experience for less fortunate inner-city youths and I’m following up with a request for used ski and snowboard clothing and gear donations.

If you have used, yet still functional, winter clothing, parkas, fleeces, thermal underwear, gloves, old snowboards, skis that you no longer need, please consider donating them. Your donation would benefit the Edison High School Alpine Winter Sports Club serving less fortunate inner-city youths.

If it’s equipment donations, it has to be late model enough(for example, please no old straight skis or old ski bindings) so kids can learn how to easily ski and snowboard.

Please mail your donations to Ron Schwartz P.O. Box 4771 Stockton, CA 95204-4771

I can also pick up donations in the Bay Area from time-to-time; please contact me to make arrangements.

Our first ski trip will be to Bear Valley where the resort has a special first-timers program in mid-late January 2011.

The first trip includes rentals, but after that, the club will attempt to provide the necessary equipment with your kind donations. Special advance thanks for your consideration and kind donations.

If you have any questions or would like to contact me to arrange for a donation pick-up, please contact:

Ron Schwartz, 510.867.6825 or by email

Remember to say that you saw this donation request on SnowPals.

Thank you!
