St. Paul, Minnesota-based supplier Storm Creek (PPAI438091, S6) reports that it contributed a record $50,002 to charity in 2019. The giving total includes more than $40,000 donated to participating charity partners during its Annual Warehouse Sales in October and November, as well as $10,000 to 1% for the Planet. Storm Creek also gives countless product/in-kind donations to local and national emergency assistance programs throughout the year.

Funds raised during the Annual Warehouse Sales go to more than 25 charities through Storm Creek’s Shop for a Cause Program, which was launched to allow shoppers to give back to those in need.

“Shop for a Cause has become the foundation of our warehouse sale, making it a truly unique experience—it’s the reason people keep coming back year after year,” says Storm Creek CEO Teresa Fudenberg. “The program allows customers to shop, save and give by using a coupon for the charity of their choosing. They get $10 off their order of $50 or more, and we give 10 percent to the selected charity. This year’s goal was $35,000, and it’s amazing to see how our community rallied to surpass that.”

Participating charity partners include: American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Animal Ark, Cultivate International, Eagan Lion’s Club, Feed My Starving Children, FMSC Cannon Falls Mobile Pack, Finnigan’s Community Fund, Firefly Sisterhood, Gobble Gait (Hastings Family Services), Hastings Hockey Association, Hastings Show Choir, Hastings Volleyball Boosters, Inver Grove Heights Band Boosters, Pine Harbor Christian Academy, Ronald McDonald House, Secondhand Hounds, Servant Road, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, St. Philip’s Early Learning Center, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. John the Baptist School, Tee It Up for the Troops, The Open Door Pantry, TLC of Hastings, Twin Cities in Motion and United Way of Hastings.
