686 PPE Donations


PPE COVERALLS

We focused our energy on our home city of Los Angeles - outfitting facilities dealing with Mental Heath, underserved communities and minorities.

We were also able to place some PPE Coveralls into mountain regions in Utah, Arizona and Washington to support communities in the mountains who have given so much to 686 and snowboarding & skiing.

Via Get Us PPE, we are also able to funnel the Coveralls to facilities around the country including mountainous regions we were not able to make direct contact with.

DONATION FACEMASK

One focus of ours was helping those who help others - frontline workers who work directly in the community and come in contact with at-risk individuals daily.

Another focus was on the community around our office in Los Angeles. We have a history interacting with Boys & Girls Clubs in our local Compton and surrounding areas.

Our last focus was on groups that mentor youth by taking them snowboarding and providing an opportunity that these children otherwise would not have had.

  • Watts/Willowbrook Boys & Girls Club -  This is the Club that is closest to the office and the Club we took snowboarding previously as well as taught skateboarding and other skills to the children here. This organization was the first club to serve the south Los Angeles area.

  • Hollywood Boys & Girls Club - While not in our Compton Backyard, this Club is close to 686 because the leader at the club had previously lead our local Watts/Willowbrook Club.

  • The Service Board - TSB builds community around strengthening youth capacity and amplifying youth voice by providing opportunities for leadership and personal development. TSB teaches inner-city, under-served communities how to snowboard in the mountains around Seattle, Washington. This may be the only time these individuals get to go snowboarding.

  • Revert Foundation -  The Revert Foundation aims to create a meaningful impact on the lives of youth, especially those who come from households where snowboarding and other sideways sports (skateboarding and paddle boarding) may not be an option due to financial challenges or the uncertainty of a consistent family structure. By sharing the experiences they had as youth to build a foundation, their mission is to create mentoring opportunities for young people to gain healthy habits, learn life lesson perspectives, and develop self-confidence.

  • Orange County Rescue Mission - This organization is close to us as this is our VP of Sales' local rescue mission. The Orange County Rescue Mission provides assistance to homeless populations in the areas of guidance, counseling, education, job training, shelter, food, clothing, health care, and independent living communities.

  • Mammoth Mountain Hospital and Ski Patrol - We are working on getting masks to the Mammoth Mountain hospital as reusable mask covers for this small hospital that is not equipped to handle a major outbreak. We are also aligning a donation to the Mammoth Mountain Ski Patrol.
