Gear & Food Drive - TGTHER x Avid4 Adventure

We believe in the power of compassion and the positive impacts that make a difference in our community in Boulder County. This year, we are thrilled to launch our Gear and Food Drive, dedicated to brightening the lives of underprivileged individuals.

We're partnering with TGTHR, a non-profit in Boulder, CO that serves young people (12-24) who are experiencing homelessness. Their services include a drop-in center for youth to receive basic needs and resource navigation support, an overnight emergency shelter for youth to stay in, an affordable apartment complex that offers comprehensive support services for transitioning to stable housing, and much more. In an attempt to Live Community, Avid4 Adventure is partnering with TGTHR to help collect:

  1. Basic necessities to be distributed via outreach efforts to individuals currently outside experiencing homelessness
  2. Outdoor gear, sports equipment, and school supplies to be delivered directly to TGTHR youth who are actively participating in their programming

You can purchase & donate any of the gear (bikes/clothes/packs) on our online shop to this cause or donate any of the following items:
