It’s not a
surprise that Gear Forward and Campmor have become partners to join forces to help outfit the next generation of adventurers. Some may not know that both entities started in garages as ideas… one to sell quality outdoor gear beginning in 1978 and Gear Forward more recently, aimed at ensuring kids who need gear to get outdoors have the resources they need.
Gear Forward is very excited to announce a partnership with Campmor. Campmor with this partnership becomes the first large scale retailer to partner with Gear Forward to house a gear donation box in their store to allow customers to donate gently used gear to Gear Forward.
By partnering with Gear Forward, Campmor is showcasing their strong belief in sustainability and giving back to the community. Gear Forward applauds this action and looks forward to a long-standing relationship that allows for countless youth around their retail location and beyond to be the direct beneficiary of the donated gear by the compassionate customers of Campmor.
“I am very excited to have Campmor as our first large scale retailer to partner with Gear Forward. I can recall getting the Campmor catalog as a young Boy Scout and dreaming of the gear I wished to have one day. Now via this process together Gear Forward and Campmor can work together to provide gear to youth in need.” Scott Gauvin, Executive Director/Founder.
Gently used outdoor gear items such as tents, backpacks and sleeping bags along with other assorted accessories may be donated at the Campmor retail location located at 810 Route 17 North Paramus, New Jersey 07652.
