Does anyone know where to donate used sports equipment in Berkeley since Sports 4 Kids closed? I mostly gymnastic and soccer stuff, but some ski wear also. Did Sports 4 Kids move? Mary

I am looking for a place to donate team soccer uniforms -shirts,shorts and socks. I heard there are organisations looking for these. Thank you

I believe the Orinda Youth Association (OYA) has a donation ''plan'' for children in Mexico. You can email them at: orindayouth AT

Where can I donate ski equipment and other sports equipment?

Sports for Kids has an outlet on Rose St. at Shattuck/Henry St. in Berkeley. They would love to have your used ski and other sports equipment. Terri

Go to Sports 4 Kids, they have a resale store at 2095 Rose St in Berkeley, just east of Shattuck. 868-1591 The store supports their mission to provide sports in many schools in the bay area. You can check them out at: I just cleaned out all our outgrown kids sports stuff. anon

Sports4Kids on Rose is the place. It's a non-profit. In addition to selling used equipment, they also provide it free to low-income school kids in the east bay. It's a great organization!
