Berkshire East Connects Ski Goggle Donors to Medical Workers Fighting COVID-19

Goggles for docs Berkshire East Covid-19During these times, it’s tough to know how to help. However, our local ski resort’s owner, Jon Schaefer, found a simple thing that many people and companies can do to help the doctors and medical professionals who are taking care of sick patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, Berkshire East’s Goggles for Docs have connected 41,788 pairs of ski and snowboard goggles from goggle donors to hospitals and medical centers in need of protective equipment. 

Ski and snowboard goggles are an effective personal protection while fighting COVID-19 because they create a strong seal around the edges, generally don’t fog up easily and are reusable. Even if the goggles are tinted, doctors would still prefer them over exposure to the Coronavirus. Photos of gratitude have been sent back to donors showing medical professionals wearing the donated ski goggles on the job.

If you have a pair of new or used ski goggles that you would like to donate, visit their website, and you can select a hospital to donate to, as well as instructions on how to safely prepare your goggles to be shipped. If you don’t have any ski goggles to donate, you can make a monetary donation, become a drop-off spot, or a regional volunteer. 

I am so proud of this local business for stepping up and helping our medical community near and far, as well as our locals for participating in this effort.
