The equipment will be delivered to Sport Central where it will be sorted, repaired, and given out to kids in need. For more information about our process, click here.

If the equipment is in is relatively good shape – not cracked, rusted, or broken beyond repair – can be donated to Sport Central. Safety is our first priority.

Sport Central gives equipment primarily to kids in need who live in the Edmonton and surrounding area. We also donate to communities from Red Deer to the northern border of Alberta and to areas outside of Alberta when there is a surplus of equipment.
