How many public areas in your community have enough shade?


Look at your children’s playgrounds, your local public parks, local community centers and recreational areas – are there shade structures available?

We hear all too often that we need to “Seek Shade” during peak hours of the day, and what we at SUMMERSKIN have realized is that seeking shade outdoors isn’t always possible. 

Which is why....

SUMMERSKIN is proud to support the American Academy of Dermatology’s Shade Structure Grant Program. The American Academy of Dermatology provides grants for organizations to build permanent community shade structures.

Each shade structure provides coverage for as many as 600 people every day. Think of how many people you could protect in your community!

SUMMERSKIN is now collecting donations to the Shade Structure Grant program. The donations are items that can be added to your SUMMERSKIN cart and purchased through our checkout process. The donation values are $1, $5, $10 or $20, and for every donation you make to the Shade Structure Program, we will send you a SUMMERSKIN gift card. (See All Available Donations here.)
