Orvis Birmingham Supports Black Warrior Riverkeeper
Orvis will expand its longstanding support of conservation efforts through “Giveback Days” this September. Black Warrior Riverkeeper, a nonprofit clean water advocacy organization, will receive customer donations gathered at The Summit’s Orvis store from September 1 through 26. Each customer will receive one $10 Orvis Savings Card if they donate $10 or more.
Orvis is an American family-owned business specializing in fly fishing, hunting and sporting goods. The oldest mail-order retailer in the United States, Orvis operates over 80 stores in the U.S. and the U.K. Orvis Birmingham is located at 305 Summit Boulevard, Birmingham, AL 35243. Store Hours are Monday-Saturday 10:00-7:00 and Sunday 12:00-6:00.
“We are proud to have been a Conservation Partner of Orvis since they opened a Birmingham store,” said Charles Scribner, executive director of Black Warrior Riverkeeper. “It is exciting to enhance our Orvis partnership through Giveback Days for the sake of cleaner water and better fishing.”
The synergy is natural between Black Warrior Riverkeeper, an avid defender of fishermen, and Orvis, the world leader in fly fishing. Orvis Birmingham has supported Black Warrior Riverkeeper at its store’s Grand Opening in 2014, with its corporate grants program, in an innovative partnership with James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Hastings, and through fishing lessons at Riverkeeper events.
“If we are to benefit from the use of our natural resources, we must be willing to act to preserve them,” said Perk Perkins, chief executive officer, The Orvis Company.
