DENVER, CO (BRAIN)—Primal Wear recently donated 1,000 custom Trips for Kids jerseys to Trips for Kids International.

Trips for Kids International plans to distribute the jerseys among its 69 chapters in the United States, Canada and Israel to be used as incentives for children and volunteers, or as fundraiser items, according to a press release.

"Each TFK chapter will have the flexibility to use their allotted jerseys in whatever way best fits their needs," said Marilyn Price, Trips for Kids executive director. "Here at the Marin Chapter, we will add the jerseys to the items kids can work towards earning as part of our Earn-A-Bike program. Donated items like these jerseys helps us fulfill our mission to teach and reward kids for personal responsibility and achievement. $70,000 worth of jerseys is a very large donation and we a very thankful to Primal Wear for their support."

Over the years, Primal Wear has regularly donated overstock items to the Trips for Kids Re-Cyclery for resale and has been involved with the nonprofit's Denver chapter. However, this is the company's first donation of brand new, custom Trips for Kids jerseys.

"Primal Wear is thrilled at the opportunity to take our involvement with Trips for Kids to a new level," said Dave Edwards, Primal Wear founder and CEO. "Our hope is that the custom jerseys are an inspiration to the kids who receive them and a banner for promoting the Trips for Kids organization."
