How Minus33 Helps hikeSafe
Minus33 is an official cooperator of the hikeSafe program. The assets we use are created and owned by the hikeSafe program, the New Hampshire Fish & Game, and the White Mountain National Forest.
We are strong believers in safety. hikeSafe’s message can apply to any outdoor activity, not only hiking. As New Hampshire natives, we are strong supporters of our Fish and Game and Forest Services. Our goal by participating as a cooperator is to spread the message of safety to our customers. We know our customers love to get outside, and we want you to be safe so that you can enjoy it.
Donations to Search and Rescue
One of the most common things hikers are unprepared for is an unexpected night on the mountain. Many set out on what they think is going to be a simple day hike, forgetting to pack warm clothing in case of an emergency.
Minus33 collects any unsalable clothing: factory seconds, returns, or garments with minor defects. They are then assembled into “kits” – a head-to-toe outfit of warm clothing. The kits go along on Search and Rescue missions. Once victims are found, they can put the kits on, and start getting warmed up immediately. This helps to prevent or delay hypothermia.
