Los Angeles, CA (August, 2012) – Outdoor Products, a leading manufacturer in outdoor gear for all lifestyles, is ramping up their corporate giving strategy in order to provide hundreds of children in need with backpacks for school. As a company embedded in a heritage of outdoor products, caring for the environment and for the global community has always been part of Outdoor Product’s DNA.

Outdoor Products teams up with the nonprofit, A Place Called Home, which is a safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through meaningful programs in education, arts, and well-being. Outdoor Products welcomes opportunities such as this to make the community and the world a better place to live in and explore.

Outdoor Products visits a Port Au Prince, Haiti to donate hundreds of school backpacks and day packs to children and adults in need.

“The commitment we have to our community is a pillar of the company’s vision. Outdoor Products understands the inherent value of a solid corporate giving strategy and we are proud to make a difference,” says Brad Ottomeyer, President.

A sustainable business gives more than it takes. Outdoor Products gives back to the communities where the company’s resources make the greatest impact and they support organizations with a shared vision.
