COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Walkabout Outfitter is proud that we are involved in our communities in many, many ways!

Not only do we give thousands of dollars in donations and sponsorships, we also give free classes, presentations, and sometimes out of the box ways in order to do good within our community. We love to partner with organizations which serve our communities.

Many of us on the Walkabout team are part of the local downtown groups, public land associations, trail groups where they often serve on committees and as board members. We also strive to helping those in need through small local events like cake-walks for individuals in need, fundraisers and raffles, and door prizes local public service groups like the fire departments. We feel strongly that one of the beauties and joys of being a small local business is what we can give back to our communities.
