REI and NPS Support Programs for Children in Poverty, Have Fun Doing It

REI and NPS are raising awareness about programs in the greater Wausau area that provide support to children in poverty.  REI and NPS’s team members will be celebrating Red Nose Day on May 26th with a company-wide campaign.

REI and NPS purchased red clown noses to support the non-profit organization Comic Relief, Inc. Team members have been taking pictures wearing the noses. The pictures will be posted on social media with promotional messages about organizations in the Wausau area that are designed to help children in poverty. Local programs include Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Blessings in a Backpack, Boys and Girls Club, Bridge Community Health Clinic, and Children’s Service Society.
