Clean Out Your Closet for the Kids!

To show our support for the local community, we’re hosting a clothing-drive and donation station for Outdoor Lab during the Fall Festival. 

As many of you know, Outdoor Lab has become a rite of passage in the Jefferson County area and a national standard for outdoor education programs across the country. This 62-year-old program impacts over 7,000 Jefferson County students each year and has over 385,000 alumni. 

Interested in contributing even more? Feel free to collect new or gently used items from work, neighbors, friends and family and swing by the Fall Festival to drop them off. All clothing and monetary donations received will help us restock gear closets at the Outdoor Lab site clinics; a crucial resource available for all students to utilize during their time at Mount Evans and Windy Peak Outdoor Lab Schools.

Below are items most needed (new and gently used items only, please): 

·        Girl’s jeans (sizes 14 and up needed most)

·        Men’s jeans (sizes 38 waist and up needed most)

·        Boots of all sizes

·        Large adjustable belts

·        SPF Chapstick

*Cash, Check and Credit Card donations accepted, monetary donations are tax deductible. EIN tax ID 20-0293537

An afternoon you won’t want to miss, we look forward to celebrating the season with you!
