Supplier Storm Creek (PPAI 438091), headquartered in Hastings, Minnesota, has announced that it has exceeded its charity program goals for 2017, raising $21,193 for local and national charity partners.
As part of its Embrace the Cause Charitable Giving Program, Storm Creek is committed to giving generously to local charities. Every year during its annual warehouse sales, the company offers a special “Shop for a Cause, Give 10%, Save $10” fundraising opportunity. Shoppers can select a participating charity partner they would like to support, and Storm Creek donates 10 percent of the purchase to the selected partner, while the shopper gets $10 off their order of $50 or more.
“I am very proud that we were able to make such an impact in so many ways this year,” says Storm Creek CEO Teresa Fudenberg. “An additional bonus is that we introduced special, limited-edition ‘Embrace the Cold’ hats, in partnership with a local television station, along with other winter apparel – all proceeds going to the Special Olympics Minnesota.”

Charity partners also received an opportunity to be featured during special “Spotlight Hour” segments throughout the warehouse sales to provide further information and additional promotions to guests.
Storm Creek charity partners included Special Olympics; Friends of Twin Cities in Motion; The American Cancer Society; Feed My Starving Children; Gobble Gait Marathon (Hasting Family Services); Save the Boundary Waters; Feed My Starving Children Cannon Falls Mobile Pack; Minnesota Military Family Foundation; The Open Door (hunger relief through access to healthy food); Firefly Sisterhood (breast cancer mentors); Finnegans Community Fund (alleviating hunger in local communities); Swingin’ on the River; Servant Road (mission trips); The Dan-O Fund (support for families dealing with mental illness and suicide); VailPlace; Spirit River Community; and the Hastings LaCrosse Club.
Fudenberg adds, “Not only do we support charities during our warehouse sales and the holiday season, we seek greater meaning in our work by giving generously to impact causes throughout the entire year. Through Embrace the Cause 2017, we donated one piece of apparel for every item purchased on our website to victims of Hurricane Harvey, as well as donated to local charities in our headquarter location in the Twin Cities.”
