High School Outing Club Seeking Equip Donations

High School Outing Club Seeking Equip Donations

Post by Phil Lussi » Sat, 23 Oct 2004 04:16:45

This is an appeal to any telemark skiers who have old equipment
gathering dust in storage. If you itemize your taxes you now have an
opportunity to donate that equipment and receive a tax deduction for
its value.

We are a high school outing club in Western Mass. that recently
received a donation from a local skier of seven pairs of tele skis,
with bindings. The problem now is generating a supply of boots and
poles, etc. to go with the skis.

Our local education support foundation, the Mary Lyon Education Fund,
will act as the official recipient of any donated equipment and is a
non-profit with 501C tax status.

We are not particular. Anything and everything will be accepted.
Single poles or single climbing skins could be very useful if multiple
people end up donating such items.

Please give this request your consideration. If you feel that you can
help, send your donations to:

Mohawk Trail Regional High School Outing Club c/o Philip Lussier
26 Ashfield Rd.
Shelburne Falls, MA 01370

Enclose a note with your estimate of the market value of the donated
items. You will receive a thank you letter from the MLEF for a
donation of that value.

If you have further questions you can call: 413-628-9811, email

www.mohawk.mtrsd.k12.ma.us or visit the Mary Lyon Foundation website
at www.mlef.org

Thanks for any help you can give us.
