2016 Letter-writing event recap

Community service is at the heart of Gearhead Outfitters. We strive every day to serve our customers and our community and we look to our employees, friends and customers for great causes to be a part of. 

This year, on Armed Services Day, our team came together to host our second annual letter-writing event and donation drive for our military. Our donations and letters will then be sent to a non-profit organization for care packages to deployed military members, veterans, new recruits, wounded warriors and care givers.  


Gearhead Teammates!

Thank you to everyone who supported the event! It would not have been a success without you! A special thanks to The Mall at Turtle Creek, St. Bernards Hospital, NEA Baptist Hospital, Jonesboro Family Dental, Woodruff Family Dental, Art Advertising, PakMail, Master Print Group, Nestle, Cupcakes at Turtle Creek, and Chic-fil-a for your donations and support.



We collected more than 400 letters! 

This year, donations included:

  • 60 pairs of socks
  • 64 packs of tissue
  • 41 pairs of hand warmers
  • 24 travel-sized deodorants
  • 8 large packs of batteries
  • 112 travel-sized containers of floss
