Help Kids in Maine Enjoy Winter! Donate Snowshoes to the WinterKids Snowshoe Drive.

Help Kids in Maine Enjoy Winter! Donate Snowshoes to the WinterKids Snowshoe Drive.

Have some old snowshoes at home? Donate them during our WinterKids Snowshoe Drive to help families in Maine access the great outdoors this winter! 

Staying active in the winter is a great way to stay in shape and enjoy Maine’s longest season. Snowshoeing is a fun, safe, and easy way to get outside and be healthy. 

Please donate lightly-used snowshoes at our participating locations. All donations will be cleaned, inspected, and then be made available for use. Kid’s snowshoes are needed most!

When: November 30 – December 13, 2020

Students, Teachers, and Families Impacted in Maine & New Hampshire since 2010!

WinterKids is the only nonprofit in Maine dedicated exclusively to increasing outdoor physical activity in children and families during our longest, most sedentary season.  

The shorter, darker, and colder days of winter and the increasing allure of screen time make it all too easy for kids and families to “hibernate.”  At WinterKids, we make it our business to provide kids, parents, and teachers with the right option: to get outside, get active, and have fun in the winter – and year-round.

Outdoor kids are active kids. Active kids are healthy kids. Healthy kids are happy kids. Happy kids are “winter kids.”
