Gear Drive


Gear Drive

All Year Long!

Keystone Science School works with students from all parts of the country. Many students come unprepared for the mountain experience. To ensure each student has a positive experience we provide them with the necessary warm clothes and outdoor gear.

In recent years our program has expanded, and our clothing/outdoor gear needs have dramatically increased. We are requesting donations of any warm clothes and outdoor gear to meet our increased needs. Included below are our biggest needs and details of the gear drive. Any donation to KSS is tax deductible (see form below).
