Donate Goods

Over 800 Boston youth will hit the slopes with us this winter. The following items are needed to outfit them!

YES accepts a very limited amount of prearranged equipment and winter clothing donations.
While YES appreciates generous in-kind donations of equipment, we are not currently able to accept all donations due to space constraints.
