One of our favorite organizations, STOKED, is mobilizing in the Sandy recovery effort and is asking for your help! Here’s the STOKED story…
What is STOKED?
STOKED is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote personal development, academic achievement, and healthy living to under-served youth through action sports culture- including snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding.
- Success – achievement and goal setting
- Teamwork – collaboration
- Openness – accessibility to youth, mentors, community, and our sponsors
- Kudos – positive feedback, rewards, and encouragement
- Energy – engaging, relevant, and challenging activities rooted in action sports
- Determination – confidence and ambition to deliver opportunities to our youth
How YOU can help STOKED with Sandy Relief Efforts:
1.) You can Sign up to volunteer on Saturday, Nov. 10th with Stoked to Serve*
If you’re able to head out to the Rockaways to get your hands dirty and aid in the clean-up efforts, sign up to get on board the bus Saturday! The devastation along NY’s shorelines has been horrendous, and Rockaway is one of the worst hit. With limited resources and funding, they could use all the volunteers they can get. Click here to sign up and receive more details.
Then ask your family, friends, co-workers, newly necessary carpooling buddy to pledge to sponsor STOKED in support of your volunteer efforts. Donations can either be a flat, up-front amount, OR pledged based on total actual number of service hours completed by all STOKED volunteers.
*Unfortunately there are limited spaces available and we will close the sign up when we’ve reached capacity
2.) You can also make a monetary donation to STOKED to support their personal recovery efforts.
OvRride is helping mobilize 2 buses to bring 100 Stoked volunteers out to Rockaway. Please help us to help get STOKED on the road to recovery by donating to the cause! Make donations directly at STOKED.org
Join the cause by helping with park clean-up and sponsoring STOKED so that the program can continue to empower and motivate youth across New York. Go to STOKED.org to find out more.
