In-kind donations

Gear donations

SOS is in constant need of gear to support our program participants. Any donations should be new or only slightly used and in good working condition. You can donate gear to SOS by sending or dropping-off donations at any of our offices. When we receive your donation, we will mail you a donation receipt.

Event Donations

SOS holds many fundraising events throughout the year. In-kind donations can be used for prizes in raffles and auctions, participant awards, graduation gifts, and food or drink assistance for events.

Volunteer

There are many volunteer opportunities on and off the mountain with SOS. In fact, over 750 adult volunteers give their time to SOS each year! We have opportunities for volunteers in outdoor youth mentoring programs, special events and administrative support. If you are interested, please read on for short descriptions and send an email with your name, location, and program of interest to volunteer@sosoutreach.org.

Mentor

This is a minimum ten-day, season-long commitment that includes five on-hill days and at least five days off-hill. Mentors provide a positive adult influence for our participants, working with them to better understand the SOS core values, improve their outdoor activity skills, enhance their leadership and career development training, and develop meaningful community service projects.
