Skate Exchange Program Needs Skates

If you have a pair of skates in good condition that need a new home, please donate them to the Skate Exchange Program being sponsored by the City of Greater Sudbury and the Sudbury and District Health Unit.

The Skate Exchange program can provide participants with a free pair of skates to encourage fun, healthy activities this winter. You don’t need to donate skates to participate in the program. Anyone who would like a pair is welcome to participate.

The following places are accepting donated skates during regular business hours:
Tom Davies Square (Citizen Service Centre, Centre de santé communautaire du Grand Sudbury, Sudbury & District Health Unit, YMCA Sudbury, and the Human League Association.
