A Letter To Campmor For Volunteer Discounts

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing on behalf of all volunteers in the Gulf Coast.

As you can imagine, life is still very basic, with camping and that goes with it the rule rather than the exception.

I am asking you to search within yourselves for the reaction you would hope others would take on your behalf and then act.

If someone calls to order equipment and states it is for a volunteer trip they are taking to the Gulf Region, please allow them a discount since they are already giving so much to an area in so much need.

There could be obvious exclusions, such as winter gear, or limited inclusions, such as small selections in each category. The important thing is to help, and when there is a good chance the volunteers will leave at least some of their gear for the locals or other volunteers coming to the area, you would be truly enhancing that gift giving ability.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience regarding this very important idea.

I thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Send to:
Campmor
400 Corporate Drive
PO Box 680
Mahwah, NJ 07430
