Sport Central Edmonton (Equipment for Kids)

Formed in 1991, Sport Central was created by community-minded individuals who wanted to see children in need have access to necessary sport equipment. As a volunteer driven, Alberta-based charitable organization, Sport Central provides sports equipment at no cost to kids in need. Generous donations of gently used equipment and volunteer time by Edmonton and area residents help make this one of Alberta’s most cost effective charities. Since it’s inception, Sport Central has provided over 180,000 low-income kids with safe gear, enabling them to participate in the sport of their choice.
