Support Your Local Hobby Shops!

Now is more important than ever to Support Your Local Hobby Shops. RC Driver is very excited to see Horizon Hobby come up with an exciting program to offer additional assistance to Horizon Certified Partner Dealers. Please take a moment to see how you can help through their “I Support My Local Hobby Shop” fundraiser.

Support Your Local Hobby Shops



Support Your Local Hobby Shops

We all belong to a unique community of modelers, clubs, business owners and organizations who share a deep passion for radio-control. The RC hobby spans generations and bonds us like glue. It’s a way of life, and for some — like our local, trusted hobby shops — it also provides a livelihood. That livelihood now faces an unprecedented challenge.

As you know, the restrictions that currently prevent brick-and-mortar hobby retailers from normal operation have threatened their ability to support themselves and their families. Those shops are always there when we need them, with great products, expert advice and on-the-spot support. Now, they need us.

It’s time to pitch together like we always do when a member of our RC community needs a hand. Horizon Hobby® is therefore launching a special fundraising initiative to help our retail partners through these difficult times. We’ve made it very easy for RC enthusiasts and friends to lend a hand.

Support Your Local Hobby Shops

HorizonHobby.com is offering merchandise for sale and taking donations that lets everyone show support for their local shops. We are offering “I support my local hobby shop” shirts and decals with all net proceeds going to Horizon Partner stores. This fundraising campaign ends on June 1, when all net proceeds will go directly to Horizon Certified Partner™ Hobby Shops.    (Link directly to the Horizon Hobby Support Local Hobby Shops Fundraiser web page.)
