In October, Hurricane Sandy devastated the East Coast – taking lives, homes, businesses and belongings from thousands of families. With the snow sports industry looking for ways to help, SIA partnered with K.I.D.S. (Kids In Distressed Situations) to create the New Year, New Start Sand Relief program. More than 5,000 lbs. of donations were collected through the program from SIA members, industry retailers, and sales reps.
K.I.D.S. will be distributing winter apparel and sneakers at two separate events in New York this month. The first event, “Winter in May” will take place this Friday, May 10, 2013 at The Far Rockaway Community Library where K.I.D.S. will be distributing winter apparel.
Next Tuesday, May 14, 2013 K.I.D.S. will be holding an “All In” Skateboard Event with refreshments, music, dancing, and a sneaker giveaway at Queens Library for Teens.
Thanks to everyone for their help with the New Year, New Start Sandy Relief Program!
