Starting now through Dec. 25, REI customers will be asked to donate money to the Carolina Thread Trail (CTT or The Thread) as part of the company’s “Change for Change” program. For every purchase this holiday season, customers will be asked to round up their final purchase cost to the nearest dollar. That extra change will be donated to The Thread!
“We appreciate REI and its customers for all of their support of The Carolina Thread Trail,” said Ann Browning, project director for The Thread. “We are pleased to be this year’s recipients of the holiday give back program, as every dollar helps us continue our efforts to build trail and blueways within our region.”
There are two REI stores within the Charlotte region that are participating in this giving program: REI Charlotte at 9755
Northlake Centre Pkwy., Charlotte, 28216, phone: 704.921.0320 and REI Pineville at 11067 Carolina Place Pkwy, Pineville, 28134, phone: 704.341.7405.
Please encourage your family and friends to shop at REI this holiday season to help The Thread. For more
