Hydro Flask announced the launch of Parks For All, the company’s new charitable giving program. Parks For All supports the development and maintenance of public green spaces in the U.S. and beyond. Through the program, Hydro Flask will donate a series of cash grants and product donations to non-profit organizations whose missions align with working to build, restore and preserve parks.
Hydro Flask will fulfill grant requests from the Oregon State Parks Foundation, Appalachian Trail Conservancy and Pacific Crest Trail Association contributing a total of $85,000 in grant funds. The money will support the Pacific Crest Trail Association’s Trail Skills College program, which provides training and education for PCTA volunteers, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s expansion of the Monson Visitor Center, and Oregon State Parks Foundation’s Ticket2Ride program, which enables elementary and middle school-aged children from low to moderate income communities to use the state parks for experiential learning.
“Parks For All is our way of sharing the love we have for green spaces, and ensuring these special places get the attention and protection they deserve,” said PR and Communications Manager Lucas Alberg. “For us, parks represent places we can all go to recreate, relax or be inspired, ultimately making us healthier, happier and more fulfilled.”
Oregon State Parks Foundation raises funds to enhance and preserve more than 260 Oregon state parks. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy preserves and manages the Appalachian Trail, ensuring that its vast natural beauty can be shared and enjoyed today, tomorrow, and for centuries to come. The Pacific Crest Trail Association protects, preserves and promotes the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail as a world-class experience for hikers and equestrians.
