Maybe a year too late, but I have pageant trophies that I would love to donate if you're still interested.

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.

Where in the central New Jersey area can I donate about 60 trophies that my 3 sons have received over the past 10 years or so? The majority have a baseball, basketball, or soccer figure on top.

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Boys and girls clubs, schools maybe. The Salvation Army will take them, and resell them. Other thrift stores may take them. Perhaps the clubs that gave them to your sons may take them back to reuse after you remove the name plates.

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.

If you ever bought or received a flower arrangement in one of those milk glass looking things, then you know you can't even give those things away once the flowers are dead. I had a flea market store and couldn't get a quarter apiece for them. So I took some old trophies apart, made nice wooden lids for the glass and put parts of the trophies on top for handles and I get $15.00 each for the " sugar bowls" and candy dishes.

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

Hi and thanks for the information as I have difficulty finding anyone to take trophies. Of course it could be the area but I work part time for a major charity and we have been unable to sell them (at any price).

I will look for some of the places you mentioned and maybe have better luck.

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."

Check with your local child care centers or public school. They could give them away without your name on them to a child who is earning rewards for behavior.

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?

Hi Patricia,

Just to add to some of the other comments, we get this question quite a lot from our customers. We are planning on adding a page to our site at some point with some advice, but in general we suggest the following -

Donate them to charity award dinners/evenings

Donate to local sports teams where funds are tight

Donate to local Student sports teams, again where funds are tight

Hope that helps a bit!

Patrick

Old trophies can be recycled by using the tops (the people, balls, etc) as a coat rack in a child's room by attaching the tops to a piece of wood as the hangers. The marble can be reused in the garden to separate flower beds, if you lay then on their side it gives a sawtooth effect much like bricks on their sides. Hope this gives you some ideas!

My belated husband was an avid pool player and I have an abundance of trophies stored away. I am looking to donate them to a charity or a pool league that might be needing trophies in order to pay out more to the players. Any suggestions?

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Advertise on Craigslist. Do it in the "free" section and again in sports. Also, would your local pool parlor be interested? Lastly, you can ask the local sports shops what they might think. I hope that helps. PBP
