seeking better. for all.
We wear our hearts on our sleeve
Giving back to the community is at the heart of Storm Creek and woven into everything we do. From inception, we’ve utilized the power of apparel sales to drive dollars back into our communities. Wear for Better aims to impact the greater good, especially for those who need it most by supporting causes that change lives, for the better. In fact, our entire team is dedicated to upholding this value. In addition to our corporate giving, every employee is encouraged to support causes and dedicate time (through paid time off) to charity organizations they are most passionate about.
What We Do
Empowering prosperity in our world
Storm Creek has donated over tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of volunteer hours to more than 30 nonprofit causes locally and nationally. We are a member of the Minnesota Keystone Program, which recognizes companies that donate at least 2% of their pre-tax earnings to charitable organizations. We are proud to be one of the few giving at a 5% level. Through our 1% for the Planet membership, we take responsibility for the Earth by supporting organizations that do the important work to create positive environmental change. 1% of every purchase of our Eco-Collection goes to this worthy endeavor. Additionally, we donate thousands of dollars’ worth of our products and expertise to assist people in need.
We raise more than $30,000 each year by supporting multiple local and national charities through our Shop for a Cause Program offered periodically online and during our annual warehouse sales.
We want to make the world a better place. That means supporting initiatives that protect our natural environment through 1% for the Planet – and through sustainable practices at our workplace, the products we make, and the way we live our lives.
We donate thousands of dollars’ worth of our products and expertise to assist people in need – be it the hungry, the physically challenged, low-income families, or local activities that promote a healthy lifestyle.
The Minnesota Keystone Program (started in 1976) promotes corporate philanthropy by recognizing and honoring companies that donate at least 2 percent of their pre-tax earnings to charitable organizations. Storm Creek is proud to be at the 5% giving level! The commitment of Minnesota Keystone participants continues to serve as an example to other businesses, both here and around the globe, and to sustain Minnesota’s spirit of generosity and sense of communityLearn more
