This holiday, give a gift on behalf of conservation. Want a few reasons why? Here are 3 reasons why SCA should be the recipient of your year-end giving. Don’t just take it from us; take it from these three these valuable sources.
1. REI says SCA is worth it.
That’s right. REI’s flagship Seattle store has made SCA it’s sole recipient of this year’s holiday giving tree. Donations from the holiday giving tree will go to support SCA’s Seattle Community Programs. If you are in the Seattle area, stop by the REI store for more information. If not, you can make a year-end gift now .
2. Veterans and Hurricane Sandy.
In the words of Veteran Mike Madalena: “When Hurricane Sandy plunged large stretches of New Jersey under water, my SCA Veterans Fire Corps crew was on the ground within hours, ready to help. Your generous gift to SCA can bring even more veterans like me into public stewardship – easing re-entry into civilian life while protecting communities across the country from fires and other natural disasters.”

3. Building trails and changing the lives of young people.
“Your support [to SCA] helps me and others in the next generation have the opportunity to change ourselves and our world, one step at a time.” This is what Nora Kauffman, SCA Crew Leader, said of why she believes SCA is worth your year-end gift.
