ANNOUNCING: 22/23 NPO Partners
Updated: Apr 19
We are excited to officially announce our 2022-2023 Featured Non-Profit Groups. Each of these 6 groups will have 2 months where they are highlighted on our Facebook and Instagram, suggested as the NPO group to consign under for folks dropping of donations, and have the last Sunday of their month dedicated as a donation day. That means Gear Hut donates 10% of sales directly to a NPO every last Sunday of the month.
Introducing Gear Hut's 2022/2023 NPO's:
Chill Foundation - With a total of 30,000 young people since the program began with around 3,000 per year the Chill Foundation works with social service agencies, mental health agencies, foster care programs, juvenile justice programs, and schools in local communities to select youth participants. Everything is provided to the youth at no cost, whether it be snowboarding, skating, surfing, or paddleboarding! They focus on the resiliency of our participants to help them reach their full potential and see that there is a path out of their current circumstances. Their current situation doesn't have to define them or determine their path in life; Chill helps them to realize alternatives beyond the struggles they face.
