This week was another big week for Gear Forward. This week we received our very first piece of donated gear from our partners and good friends at Hike By Faith. In addition to gear donated that will be sent to youth in need, we received a large donation from our partners and good friends at Hiking The Trail. The gear that was donated by Hiking The Trail is available for purchase on the Gear Forward Store. Gear Forward accepts items that may not be suited, sized, or meant for youth, in turn, we sell them to generate income which allows us to ship the tents, backpacks, and sleeping bags to youth organizations around the country.
Donating your lightly used outdoor gear can immediately help those in need who aspire to get outdoors. If you are in the process of cleaning out your gear closet, donate your unused or unneeded gear so it can get a new lease on life and help support our efforts at the same time.

If you are aware of an outdoor-themed organization in your community who could benefit from donations please let them know about Gear Forward. We are thrilled at the response to our idea of paying it forward to help outfit the next generation of adventurers is getting. If you want to get involved please check out our "Get Involved" page.
Thanks again for your support!
