The Calgary Flames Sports Bank supports thousands of kids each year. As there is a growing need for equipment and keeping kids active and in sports, we want to ensure that the equipment being donated is clean, current and not outdated, and is not broken so we can ensure the safety of the kids receiving the equipment.
All donations can be dropped off at one of our Wood Automotive Group locations. We are asking that all equipment be placed in a clear plastic bag when being dropped off. If you are unable to have it in a clear plastic bag please ask at the dealership as they will have bags available.
We are currently prioritizing our “ask” for specific sports equipment. Current priorities include:
Soccer Balls - Size 4 & 5
Soccer Cleats - All sizes
Soccer Shin Pads - All sizes
Baseball Bats - Current USA Baseball Certification
Rollerblades - size 1-7
Badminton Rackets & Birdies
Tennis Rackets & Tennis Balls
Please also remember the equipment we are looking for is for youth. If you would not put your kids in it, we probably cannot use it. We provide a service of outfitting youth 18 and under with no cost equipment for all sports. If you have gently used equipment that can help a local child in need please donate.
Please have all equipment bagged in clear plastic bags and drop it off to one of the Wood Automotive Group locations listed below.

Calgary, we can't do it without your help
Your donations to the Calgary Flames Sports Bank keep the programs we offer running. We are 100% community funded, proudly supported by the Calgary Flames Foundation, our partners, sponsors, grants and individual donations. Join our team by becoming a donor or partner today.
There are a number of ways in which you can assist us. No gift is too small and all gifts are greatly appreciated! If you are donating equipment we ask if you would consider making a min $5 donation to help with the cleaning, sorting, sanitizing and redistribution of that equipment.
Thank YOU! for helping us get kids into gear!
