Goggles for Docs

We as PARA can help with these national efforts.  PARA racers always have extra pairs of goggles!  Time to put those goggles to good use.

 

These are uncertain times and we at U.S. Ski & Snowboard hope you are healthy and taking the necessary precautions to stay that way. As skiers and riders, we have a unique opportunity to make a tangible difference for the healthcare workers on the front lines of this pandemic.

You may have heard about Goggles For Docs, a program that seeks to get new or used ski goggles into the hands of healthcare workers who currently have no eye protection as they treat COVID-19 patients. To date, over 25,000 pairs of goggles have been donated to facilities across the country. U.S. Ski & Snowboard has facilitated collecting and shipping 500 pairs so far. The need changes every day as people fulfill requests and new requests come in.


If you are able to join in this effort, please refer to the Goggles For Docs website for information on how to prepare goggles and where to ship them. We may be alone in our social distancing, but together we have the power to make a big difference, one pair of goggles at a time.
