Mountain Equipment Recyclers teams with nonprofit for gear drive

Local retailer Mountain Equipment Recyclers is teaming with the Mile High Youth Corps for a summer gear drive for the nonprofit’s’ camping trips.

Mile High Youth Corps employs young adults, ages 18 to 24, to perform environmental conservation work throughout the Southern Front Range and while they work, they camp for five to 10 days at a time.

However, the equipment used by the nonprofit is too worn for use this summer.

Mile High Recyclers is asking for used camping gear – people can drop off their gear at Mile High Youth Corps in Colorado Springs or Mountain Equpment Recyclers May 14 through 19.
