Fleet Farm Supports Outdoor Education for At-Risk Youth
We believe in the power of getting outdoors and enjoying all that the natural environment has to offer. We are thrilled to donate $20,700 to the Greater Green Bay YMCA in support of their Outdoor Environmental Education program. Serving three schools with a high population of at-risk youth, this program and its camp instructors offer classes including canoeing, outdoor living skills and primitive fishing, all designed to create unique experiences that can inspire a life-long connection to nature.
Supporting Miracles in Motion in Cedar Rapids
Raven is a playful 13-year-old, black-and-white paint horse who loves people. He’s also in the Military Veterans Equine Care Squad (MVECS) program. When we opened our store in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, we donated $1,200 to adopt Raven and support the work of the Miracles in Motion Equestrian Therapy Center.
Teacher’s Dash for Cold Hard Cash
Fleet Farm was a sponsor of the first ever Teacher’s Dash for Cash in Sioux City, Iowa, during half-time at a Sioux City Musketeers game. Essay contest–winning teachers had the opportunity to stuff $4,000 that covered the ice rink into hats and pockets to the cheers of their students. Several teachers collected as much as $400 to use for books, projectors and band instrument repairs.
Helping Pets Find a Home
Fleet Farm supported National “Clear the Shelter” Day events in our stores. This summer, we collected thousands of dollars in donated items, focusing on the most needed supplies at local shelters and also helping many deserving animals find their forever homes. Our customers generously donated pet supplies, and some even went home with new pets for their families.
Semi-sized Water Delivery to Antigo
A massive summer storm that brought trees down and knocked power out in Antigo, Wisconsin, prompted the local Fleet Farm store to pitch in with a semi truck full of water. The donated water was enough to help approximately 1,600 local families that were without running water for more than a week.
If You Teach a Kid to Fish…
For nearly 20 years, Kids Fishing Day has been a summer-fun tradition at Fleet Farm stores. In 2019, overall attendance at these popular events grew by more than a third, and our local communities really got in the spirit of the day. Kids learned about fishing line, knot tying, fishing safety, live bait, fish identification, casting and more.
Fleet Farm Continues Tradition of Sponsoring Annual Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza
Once again, Fleet Farm was a major sponsor of what’s called the “largest charitable ice fishing contest in North America” on Gull Lake. Tickets were sold at local Fleet Farm locations. The 29th annual extravaganza attracted more than 10,000 anglers, and attendees found 20,000 ice fishing holes pre-drilled and ready to go. The ice fishing contest has accrued more than $3.3 million for charities since it started in 1991; the Confidence Learning Center, an outdoor center for persons of all ages with developmental disabilities, is the primary beneficiary of the event. Fleet Farm is so proud to be part of this longstanding tradition.
Inaugural Sample Sale Provides Funds For 37,000 Meals
Fleet Farm held a sample sale at our Appleton Store Support Center, and it was a huge success! We raised a total of $12,254 that was donated to the Fox Valley Food Bank, enough to provide 37,000 meals through Feeding America. Thank you to all who purchased products and brought canned goods for this good cause.
Fleet Farm Distribution Center Is Honored
We are proud of our Fleet Farm distribution center in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. They are the recipients of a 2018 Project of the Year award from Momentum West, a regional economic development organization serving ten counties in west central Wisconsin. Shipping Fleet Farm inventory across the Upper Midwest since February 2018, the distribution center was selected for its impact in the region.
