Supporting Second Chances

MANCHESTER, Vermont – Orvis Manchester is pleased to announce their “Giveback Days” event taking place throughout the month of September. The outdoor retailer is partnering with Second Chance Animal Center, a nonprofit dedicated to providing animals compassionate care, shelter and adoption services.

“Orvis is proud to support the Second Chance Animal Center,” stated Sarah Staib, Orvis Manchester men’s lead. “They have been an important community staple for almost 60 years, covering towns in Vermont, New York and Massachusetts. And many of their services are designed to keep animals in their home instead of having to be surrendered to the shelter.”

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 Manchester store, 4180 Main Street, on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. where the final donations will be awarded to the Second Chance Animal Center 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.
