Giving Back in the Season of Giving

Each year, we partner with you to give back to our local community in a variety of ways. And we kick that into high gear each November and December. Scroll down for details on:

The Gift Of Warmth Coat Drive
Nov 24–Dec 3, 2023

Donate gently used coats by dropping them off at one of our shop locations, and receive a $25 in-store gift card! As easy as that.


Our Coat Drive is made possible by your generous donations and by local non-profits that serve those affected by poverty and disaster. Working with these organizations, we are grateful that hope and life-changing help is provided to homeless and hurting individuals.

Giving Tuesday, November 28

This Tuesday, we celebrate and honor the amazing organizations we support throughout the year.  Land conservation is near and dear to our hearts. We support 9 land conservancies throughout NC and VA. We do clean ups around NC and VA, including the MST and the Appalachian Trail. We support the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and sponsor wilderness and trail events. And, of course, in November and December, we have our annual Gifts of Warmth Coat Drive and Habitat Day.

Habitat Day, Saturday, December 2

Shop with us on December 2!
5% of all sales goes to the local Habitat for Humanity.

As a wilderness outfitter, we equip folks so they are comfortable in the outdoors. Voluntarily leaving a warm, dry home requires the confidence that one’s gear is adequate protection—shelter, food, and clothing become a priority that we normally take for granted. Habitat Day reminds us that not everyone has an affordable home.
Each year our “Staying Warm from the Inside Out” campaign spreads the vision of “every family in a healthy home, a peaceful neighborhood, in a sustainable, diverse, tolerant, and vibrant community.”
