Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and Philadelphia Youth Sports Collaborative  are leading a citywide campaign to collect and distribute new swimwear and swim accessories for Philly’s youth. Our public pools are open, and we want to ensure our kids are suited up for the summer.

This summer, new swimwear and swim accessories are being collected at six sites. All donated bathing suits and accessories will be distributed to children at the City’s outdoor pools.

We are collecting:

  • Youth and adult bathing suits (all sizes)
  • Swim diapers (all sizes)
  • Flip flops (all sizes)
  • Beach towels
  • Goggles

Please only donate new items with tags. Used items will not be accepted.

Donations can be dropped off at one of these six locations:

Drop-off times are 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Donations can be made online. Please contact Beth Devine of Philadelphia Youth Sports Collaborative at
