A big "thank you" goes out to all of you who volunteered on an service project through REI or one of REI's nonprofit partners in 2010. It was quite a year of giving back.
While our financial support is important, our efforts go well beyond simply writing checks to worthy causes. REI actively partners with nonprofits to promote outdoor volunteerism around the country. Our aim: mobilize our communities to help care for trails, parks, waterways, beaches and other shared natural spaces.
