GOGGLES FOR DOCS ~ ~ So, this story began with a request on Saturday, March 28, 2020 from a NYC Doctor wanting to help bridge the gap until more eye protection could arrive. By Sunday morning, the east coast ski community erupted with a HUGE groundswell of support providing snowsports goggles. By Sunday mid-day, https://gogglesfordocs.com/ was born. Goggles for Docs is a grassroots effort by collective of hundreds of skiers, riders & snowsports media and manufacturers coming together to offer possible solutions to help during an unprecedented public health crisis.
Here’s what YOU may do to help:
- Collect goggles ~ Clean out your boot bags & closets!
- Prep your goggles for distribution:
- Sanitize/wipe goggles & place goggles in a ziplock bag
- Check the Goggles for Docs website for locations that are in need of protective eyewear
- If you can overnight them directly to a listed facility ~ DO IT (It will get protective eyewear into their hands quickly) -or- Drop-off your prepped donation (sanitized and bagged):Gear West (Long Lake)
Hi Tempo & The Foot Lab (White Bear Lake)
Joe’s Sporting Goods (St. Paul)
Sun & Slope Outfitters (Wayzata)
It is our hope that our healthcare professionals & 1st responders get the official PPE that they need and these donations aren’t needed. But, we want to be there to help bridge the gap until they do. Thanks so much for your support and generosity!
