Each winter, Columbia Sportswear teams with Mast General Store to provide gently used coats, jackets, sweaters, and blankets to our neighbors who need them during the coldest part of the year. 

As this “Share the Warmth” partnership enters its 17th year, all Mast Store guests are once again invited to contribute apparel that might have spent the past few years residing in the back of their closets. The Mast Store will see that these “lightly loved” cold weather items make it to local agencies who know the needs of our communities best and can distribute these donations, free of charge, to the individuals that need them the most. 

To jumpstart the campaign, Columbia will make its own donation of coats and jackets to the Mast Store’s community-based partners.  

Established in 1938, Columbia is a legend in the outerwear industry with a drive to "make it perfect and then make it better." From trending styles, like the Bugaboo jacket and Performance Fishing Gear, to cutting-edge technologies, like OutDry, Omni-Heat, and TurboDown, Columbia is passionate about the outdoors and makes gear and apparel to keep you outside longer. 

Please, bring your lightly used, freshly washed cold weather clothing to any Mast Store location now through the end of November 2022 and place them in the “Share the Warmth” collection box. The Mast Store thanks you and Columbia Sportswear for another year of making many of our neighbors’ winters much warmer, healthier, and happier.
