We are excited to announce our brand new charitable giving program – Big River Gives Back! As part of the program, 10% of sales of all Big River branded apparel and accessories will support St. Louis charities. Our charity partner for the first half of 2018 is St. Vincent Home for Children. Located in North County, St. Vincent’s mission is to provide love, security and professional treatment for troubled children and their families through a fully integrated program of services.
In the spirit of the holidays and to kick off the Big River Gives Back program, we presented the Executive Director and Development Director of St. Vincent with 30 pair of shoes and socks for the teens in St. Vincent’s residential treatment program – LifeFOCUS. We are excited for this new chapter in our charitable giving and this partnership with St. Vincent!
“When Big River Running opened in 2006, it was founded of the principle of community engagement,” said Matt Helbig, founder and co-owner of Big River Running. “We’ve reinvested in our community in many different ways over the year, but we are excited to further evolve our charitable giving through Big River Gives Back – really wanting to make an impact and support the great work that so many organizations are doing in our community.”
Now when you shop at Big River Running, you can make a difference in your community!
