CLEVELAND, Ohio – Orvis Cleveland is pleased to announce their “Giveback Days” event taking place throughout the month of September. The outdoor retailer is partnering with Western Reserve Land Conservancy, a nonprofit dedicated to the protection and restoration of essential natural assets through land conservation.
“The Land Conservancy is dedicating resources to educating its community about the importance of the area’s vital natural resources,” stated Lee DeAngelo, Orvis Cleveland retail manager. “Protecting land and water is essential for recreation, especially for anglers, 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).
The Western Reserve Land Conservancy, stretching from Sandusky Bay to the Pennsylvania border and from Lake Erie to Wayne County, was created in 2006 by the largest-ever merger of land trusts in the United States. Today, WRLC has been able to increase their initial 8,000 acres five-fold.
There will be an after-hours event in the Orvis Cleveland store, 28839 Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere, on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. where the final donations will be awarded to the Western Reserve Land Conservancy 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.
