The first Saturday of each December, Great Outdoor Provision Co. donates 5% of sales to local Habitat for Humanity affiliates. Habitat brings families in need together with volunteers and resources to build decent, affordable housing. This year's event was sponsored by MSR, Platypus and Cascade Designs. "As a wilderness outfitter, we equip folks so they are comfortable in the outdoors," says Tom Valone, owner of Great Outdoor Provision Co, "And Habitat Day reminds all of us that not everyone has an affordable home. It's an opportunity to do our part in building affordable homes in our community." More information at http://greatoutdoorprovision.com/culture/wesupport/habitat-for-humanity/
