Because living in Minnesota rules, we give back to our community with Surly Gives A Damn (SGAD). We contribute to the fine organizations that are making the North a better place to live through charitable donations, partnerships, and volunteer events. Our volunteers are a really active, passionate bunch and man do they give a damn.

Sign up to volunteer at a Surly Gives a Damn event, get a t-shirt. Easy peasy. Wear it each time you volunteer with us and feel prouder each time, guaranteed.

Fine Print: If there are opportunities to volunteer at special events or bottle wax dippings, you need to first put in some time. (Sign up for one other SGAD event first, ya dummy.)
