Charity and Donations
We feel extremely fortunate for all that we have and can offer, not only in our local community but across the nation and in some cases even internationally. Info below is intended to make you aware of some opportunities to donate time, gear and monies to some great causes. Feel free to give us a call or contact us online if you have questions or comments.
Thank you! - Pro Scooter Shop team
Our good friend Wallace Simpson is headed to Cuba in January with The Giving Lens and we’re excited to be able to help a great cause! The Giving Lens (TGL) organizes trips for photographers to have amazing experiences taking photos in remote settings, but also to give back in some way to locals at the destination. Wallace was fortunate to go to Peru with TGL in May of 2013 and work with kids in an afterschool program teaching them photography. In Cuba they will be working with Amigo Skate, in their words “a movement dedicated to peace and unity through action sports, music, and art . . . The main mission to provide kids with an outlet to express themselves. . . . The skateboard itself holds no power. The skateboard is the vehicle that we use to deliver our message – and the message is Love.” You can find out more about the fantastic organization at http://www.amigoskate.com/
PSS will accept skateboard donations that Wallace will take to Havana to donate to Amigo Skate.
We would also accept help getting the donated gear to Cuba. We have a plan in place that needs $$ to make it happen, and are looking for donations of up to $15 to help offset the costs of getting the donations to Havana. If you support what Amigo Skate and Wallace are doing, DM PSS on Instagram or Facebook and we’d be happy to connect you with Wallace to tell you all about the trip as well as coordinate receipt of any donation you can offer.
Thanks for your support!
Wolves Football Association (WFA) - fundraisers
For the last two years, PSS has donated 'scooter pack's to the WFA. WFA is the board and booster club supporting the players, coaches and community for the Eastlake High School Wolves' football team. In 2014 we donated these awesome local-artist design boxes that contain PSS shirts and Seattle Seahawks football cards.
Starbucks fundraiser for Nepal - Summer 2015
In our area, we have such great companies, like Starbucks Coffee, that do so many great things for local communities and international needs. They reached out to us for a fundraiser, to support the people in Nepal after the horrible earthquake in April 2015. We felt honored to donate a 5Starr Rebel dirt scooter.
