SWAG has distributed over 300,000 pieces of winter clothing to communities in over 30 countries since 2000.

We connect ski areas with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to ensure the warmth and comfort of our global neighbors. NGO warehouses will begin accepting donations for the 2020/2021 season in October and will begin distributing garments in January. We've reached 300,000, and can't wait to keep going!
