WINTER 2017-2018: EMBRACE THE COLD
This past winter season, Storm Creek and KARE 11 teamed up to support Special Olympics Minnesota by launching an exclusive collection of winter beanie hats and apparel, to encourage the Minnesotan spirit of Embracing the Cold and to spread the mission of Special Olympics. 11% of apparel sales went to Special Olympics Minnesota, along with all hat proceeds.
From the 2018 Super Bowl, to several Polar Plunges, even to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, our Embrace The Cold hats made a splash across our community in Minnesota and worldwide. Our team even jumped in a frozen lake for the cause! We are proud to have raised $15,000 for Special Olympics MN through this campaign.
ANNUAL WAREHOUSE SALE CHARITY PROGRAM
A major goal of our Warehouse Sale each year is to give generously to local charities, upholding our commitment to Embrace The Cause. During the weekend of our warehouse sale in November, you can select which of our charity partners you would like to support, and Storm Creek donates 10% of that sale to the selected partner. These are the organizations we supported in 2017.
HASTINGS FAMILY SERVICES
HFS provides emergency food, clothing, financial, and other support for those in need. We are proud to support this important cause right here in our headquarters community. Storm Creek has an ongoing relationship with this organization, both through our warehouse sale and through apparel donations.
ENCOURAGING A HEALTHY & ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
As an outdoor apparel company, we see it as part of our mission to encourage activity, fitness, and wellness within our community and within our own team. We partner with several local running organizations to sponsor their events and provide them with the best race gear available. We also work with other athletic organizations and fitness-oriented nonprofits to foster a healthy lifestyle within our Minnesota community.
At Storm Creek, employees are encouraged to participate in community volunteer activities. To support this value, Storm Creek allows employees to volunteer at their charity of choice for one paid workday out of the year.
