Orvis Greenville is pleased to announce their “Giveback Days” event taking place throughout the month of September. The outdoor retailer is partnering with Friends of the Reedy River, the only local, volunteer-based nonprofit dedicated to preserving, promoting and restoring the Reedy River.
“Friends of the Reedy River are educating their communities about the importance of the area’s clean waters and working extensively to improve the quality of Greenville’s hometown river,” stated Christian Fichtel, Orvis Greenville retail manager. “A clean, healthy river ecosystem is an important resource 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).
There will be an after-hours event in the Orvis Greenville store, 1 N Main Street, on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, from 6-8 p.m. where the final donations will be awarded to the Friends of the Reedy Riverand 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.
