On the Water Rehabilitation

NEW YORK CITY, New York – Orvis Fifth Avenue is pleased to announce their “Giveback Days” event taking place throughout the month of September. The outdoor retailer is partnering with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, a nonprofit dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities.

“In the past year, the New York chapter of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing has added more than 30 disabled veterans to their roster,” stated Doug Lopez, Orvis Fifth Avenue retail manager. “This donation and matching funds will go to support day and overnight trips, enabling more veterans to get out on the West Branch of the Delaware, for example, as well as other nearby waters.”

In addition to a $2,000 cash donation from Orvis, the company is challenging their customers to give back, as well. During the month of September, customers donating $10 or more will receive a $10 Orvis savings card (limit one per customer).

There will be an after-hours event in the Orvis Fifth Avenue store, 489 Fifth Avenue, on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, from 6-8 p.m. where the final donations will be awarded to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and partner groups will be raffling Orvis products to help raise additional funds. The public is invited to attend and there will be free refreshments and drawings for Orvis savings cards.

Orvis commits 5% of pre-tax profits to protecting and sustaining the natural world, not only now, but for all who follow.
