TUCSON – Local outdoor outfitter Summit Hut has teamed up with Patagonia Outdoor Clothing & Gear to help out several Southern Arizona organizations.
The companies hosted The Give a Little, Gift a Lot happy hour on September 27 at Summit Hut’s Speedway and Rosemont location.
The fundraiser allowed customers to purchase a wooden nickel for $10 to donate to four different organizations: Ironwood Tree Experience, Tucson Wildlife Center, Friends of Sabino Canyon and Earth Conservation Internship.
For every coin donated, Patagonia added $50.
“It’s just a matter of coming to terms with all parts of the environment and the outdoors, and giving money back to them that kind of gives back to what we get from the fun and the enjoyment that we have outdoors,” said Summit Hut co-owner Dana Davis.
