StoreYourBoard Contributions to Our Community
Virginia Basketball Academy (VABA):Focusing on building character and values through sport, VABA provides a variety of youth basketball opportunities for boys and girls of all ages and skill levels in Central Virginia. This winter, StoreYourBoard was fortunate to sponsor a Charlottesville-based 7th grade boys team--helping fund scholarships for players who would have otherwise been unable to participate. We were grateful for this opportunity to give back to our community in a way that helps kids stay active!
American Red Cross for Hurricane Relief: As many will remember for years to come, early fall 2017 brought several disastrous hurricanes to the Caribbean, Florida and several of the Gulf states; Harvey, Irma, Maria, Jose.... Shortly after Irma struck, we heard from one of our Keys' based suppliers. They were unable to ship orders due to UPS shutdowns and the flooding of their own shop. In an effort to help, we designed a campaign to send a percentage of sales to both our supplier and the American Red Cross to help with broader relief. A special thank you to our customers for their help with this one!
Luau & Legends of Surfing: For 24 years the Luau & Legends of Surfing Invitational has put on an incredible Cali surfing tournament that doubles as a benefit for the Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego. Product donation for participants was our small part. If you live in the area we strongly recommend checking out this great summer event.
Rivanna Trails Cleanup: In April of 2017 the entire StoreYourBoard crew took to our local Rivanna Trails for a "cleanup" day. Located near our Charlottesville office and warehouse, the community trails provide the community with an incredible wilderness playground for hikers and bikers. As trail users ourselves it felt great to remove a collection of half buried bottles and assorted trash from the landscape.
City Year: This incredible organization connects the links to bring support to schools in impoverished areas where too many students fall through the cracks in the public education system. Donating StoreYourBoard products for a fundraising raffle was our small token of support.
Charity Bowling Night: We had a blast at this Big Brothers & Big Sisters event and even took home first prize in the bowling! More importantly, our donation and participation helped the organization chase its goals in the Charlottesville area.
Friends Cure CF: Dedicated to tackling the challenges of Cystic Fibrosis for future generations, Friends Cure CF is a local organization that annually raises money for the cause. StoreYourBoard donated products as a show of support.
