Out Front and Walker Give Back
Some of you may know about our sister company, Out Front Power Company. It’s literally located in the same building here as All Terrain Grounds Maintenance. It’s a lawn care and landscaping equipment dealership, mainly for commercial and large residential accounts.
Just like Coachella or the Super Bowl, we’re changing our headliners. This year, Out Front Power Equipment and Walker Mowers, are leading our employee Pay It Forward Program.
Our companies, Out Front Power and All Terrain, have committed to giving back 3% of our top-line revenue to a number of local groups in our community through our employee ‘pay it forward’ and our customer ‘spray it forward’ programs.
Our employee Pay It Forward program is typically lined up with Giving Hearts Day to maximize our donation dollars. There are many charities in our area that do great things that need help, whether it’s volunteering time or monetary donations. In the month of February, we help the community by donating on Giving Hearts Day.
The Pay it Forward program is geared toward our full-time employees. They’re able to pick any charitable organization of their choosing. This year we asked our team, what made them pick their chosen charities and their responses gave us a good reminder of why it’s important to give back. You never know what someone is going through or what it’s like to be in someone else’s shoes.
This year we were able to give back $8,092 just through our employee pay it forward program. We’re excited to see much more our team will be able to help and give back through our Spray it forward program, volunteering, sponsorships, and other donations throughout the year.

This year I am choosing the Ronald McDonald house because when I was a newborn infant, I had to spend some time there and they helped me get through that hard part of early life and helped my parents so now I’d like to give back and help somebody else.
The Brady Oberg Legacy Foundation mission is “Providing Veterans a safe space to connect and heal.” They work hard to provide Veterans and their families with information and opportunities to sustain a happy, fulfilling life. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is often suffered in silence and they help the veteran and their family understand everything around it. My dad is a veteran and still in the military and I’ve seen firsthand what it’s like coming home from a deployment. Life can seem very different for them adjusting back to life at home. So I like to give back to military/veteran forward charities because we should be taking care of the people who fight for and defend our freedom.
