Shred for Threads Fundraiser

Local skateboarder and Sussex Tech High School senior Sam Ratner will hold a “Shred for Threads” Yard Sale this Sunday from 9 am to 12 pm at 318 Savannah Road in Lewes.  Sam collects gently used skate, surf, skim and snowboarding clothing, shoes, gear and equipment, which he then resells to benefit the Epworth Skate Park in Rehoboth.  Sam also collects new items generously donated by local shops like Liquid Board Shop, Quiet Storm and The Edge.  All proceeds from the sales go directly to the park.  Sam noted that “the benefit to the resort skate/board  sports community is two-fold: the items are sold inexpensively to kids who might not be able to afford to buy “brand new” and the park always needs funds to cover upkeep and repairs.”  “Currently, “Shred for Threads” donations will help to fund concrete repairs and concrete resealing which is necessary for the enjoyment and safety of riders”.

To donate your gently used items, please contact Sam on Instagram @samratgnar or e-mail him at [email protected].

The skate park is free and open to the public. The park was built by the grass roots organization, the Epworth Skate Project, on land donated by the Epworth United Methodist Church. The church and skate park are located at 19285 Holland Glade Road, just outside of Rehoboth Beach.
