Summit Hut, a local outdoor retailer in Tucson, has been partnering with Parks in Focus over the last year to support and participate in program activities. This partnership was recently enhanced with a project made possible by a grant from the Outdoor Foundation. Summit Hut purchased cameras for several of our program participants and their employees volunteered dozens of hours at Parks in Focus outings. Most recently, they hosted a display of photographs taken by Parks in Focus participants at their Speedway location. For the month of February, Summit Hut customers were encouraged to vote for their favorite photographs. Last week, Summit Hut held a reception to celebrate the accomplishments of the youth participants and announced the top three photos (as voted by their customers). The youth winners received a gift certificate to attend a summer outdoor program of their choice.
Thank you to Summit Hut and Outdoor Foundation for supporting this project and for being committed to getting youth outdoors.
