Non-Profit looking for backpacking gear
« on: 05/16/18, 02:53 PM »

Hi, my name is Andy Basabe, I've been a TAY user for some years now, and I am wondering if any of you have any older backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, pads, etc, that you are interested in donating or selling for very cheap.  I run Vamos Outdoors Project, a non-profit that takes Latino, ELL, and recently immigrated youth on backpacking trips into the Cascades.  We run a unique program with each trip comprising of half english speaking "local" youth and half our target scholarship group.  That way language and cultural exchange happens directly at a student to student level.  Feel free to check out if you are curious. 

I am hoping this is appropriate to put up here, I am not trying to advertise my business, but to get gear we sorely need to outfit our clients.  We like to "graduate" our participants with the gear they need so they can continue to access the mountains on their own.  These are kids who would not have the opportunity otherwise, and with both parents working constantly, childcare is usually the television.
