Pirate community store
The pirate store is an initiative of City Pirates to provide young people in Antwerp with affordable (or free) school and sports materials. We want to create a giveaway & second-hand shop where everyone is welcome and where we can make a difference in terms of equipment and other questions.
We've noticed that more and more young people find it difficult to purchase school and sports equipment/sports clothing. This makes it more difficult for them to score at school or on the field. We would like to collect school and sports materials to give away, or to sell at a low price to Antwerp youngsters. Help our store by collecting and bringing in materials, and actively have an impact on the school and sports careers of children and teenagers in Antwerp.
Which school material can you donate?
Which sports material and clothing can you donate?
How do I bring in material?
Step 1: Check the material for stains or damages
Check the material for damage and bring it in already washed.
Not sure whether something is still in good condition to bring in? Ask yourself if you would still use it.
Still not sure? Feel free to contact us!
Step 2: Choose your collection point and drop off your material
Our fixed collection spot
You can always go to the store on Turnhoutsebaan in Borgerhout to donate materials. It is best to contact our store coordinator for practical instructions.
Our traveling collection box
We also have a flexible collection box that we temporarily place at sports locations or partner companies. A major collection campaign is currently being organized by DEME, for which we thank you!
