The A.Skate Foundation/ Disaster Relief

Our friends at The A.Skate Foundation work tirelessly helping kids with autism all over the country…now they need our help. Disaster struck a couple of days ago in The A.Skate Foundation’s local community of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and its surrounding areas. Massive tornadoes killed hundreds of people and destroyed entire neighborhoods. All of the details on how to help are listed on the flier below. No Comply Skateboarding Magazine will have a donation drop box located at The Globe Coffee Lounge in downtown St. Petersburg where needed items can be dropped off. The Globe Coffee Lounge is located at 532 1st Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida. Thank you in advance for you help.
