Howdy @Pshaw8 The short answer is YES! Many of us REI employees regularly engage in stewarship activities. Your local REI store is likely connected to several non-profits that are engaged in any number of community events. Here's an REI grant recipient and partner in Colorado: Wildlands Restoration Volunteers https://www.wlrv.org/ Thanks for your efforts in supporting the outdoors!
At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.
