Embrace the Cause
Empowering prosperity in our world
At Storm Creek, we seek greater meaning in our work and our success. Our corporate charity program aims to contribute to our community’s well-being for the greater good, especially for those who need it most. We support causes that empower people to bring prosperity around the world. In fact, our entire team is dedicated to upholding this value. In addition to our corporate charity programs, every employee is encouraged to support causes and dedicate time (through paid time off) to the community charity organizations they are most passionate about.
What We Do
We raise more than $20,000 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.
