What about baseball trophies?
I am affiliated with a swim team and I have tons of trophies we do not want to throw away. Can you advise? Special Olympics does not want them. I live in Houston, Texas.
If you can't find a group that wants them, you can donate them to thrift shops. Shops in my area seem to be able to sell them. It is possible to switch out the tops (a swimmer for a golfer, for example). My mother used to have that done with donated trophies.
Are there any companies in Daytona Beach, Florida that recycle old well kept sports and band trophies? I have 5 large boxes that need a good home.
My daughter has many old girl's basketball trophies that are in good condition and I am hoping an organization can use them. I live in the Pasadena, California area. Thank you.

Special Olympics explicitly says that they do NOT want used trophies. They give out new trophies and ribbons for their events. Thanks.

We have an organization called "Community Living" in our town where challenged people live. They have picnics and sports events and the residents got a trophy for winning. All were from garage sales and had been tossed out. They really don't care what the trophy says or whose name is on it or what it was for. They "won."
We had 4 boys in sports and have many trophies that I just can't seem to throw away. Will someone take them as a donation? Thanks.
We received this advisory from a reader:
"Mostly an FYI, not a question I contacted Special Olympics, as suggested in your blog. I was told that they only use ribbons. Just thought I'd spare people the inquiry.

Where can I donate my old trophies, so that they can be recycled for good use?
Also try clubs and youth groups in the area. You could offer them on Freecycle or whatever you have. When I taught, we used them in our curling bonspiel, and some places will swap out the tops, so that bowling trophys, for example, can be changed to sunflower spitting contest trophys. I have also seen them for sale at the Salvation Army or Winners, so you can give them to charities too.
We have several trophies which were packed away in our attic. These were from our childrens' high school days in the late 70s, early 80s. They do not want them, nor do we. Is there a place in the Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania area that accepts these for recycling purposes?
