CARMEL, Indiana – Orvis Carmel is pleased to announce their “Giveback Days” event taking place throughout the month of September. The outdoor retailer is partnering with Friends of the White River, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting and promoting the continued improvement of the quality of the White River’s waters.
“Friends of the White River are educating their communities about the importance of the area’s clean, healthy ecosystem and are working extensively to improve river accessibility in Hamilton and Marion counties,” stated Jason Sandlewick, Orvis Carmel store manager. “Clean water is an important resource for recreation, especially fly fishing, and we’re proud to help support their mission.”
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 Carmel store, 14250 Clay Terrace Blvd., on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, from 6-8 p.m. where the final donations will be awarded to the Friends of the White River and partner groups will be raffling off 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.
