Community Involvement

Being of service and creating an environment where people can thrive is at the heart of what we do and who we are. We are honored to put our time, talent, and financial resources to the service of our community. You can find our team members handing out water to runners at half marathons and 5Ks, or encouraging participants as they walk for a special cause like the American Heart Association. Our entire team participates in our annual Vans4Cans program, a food drive that allows us to partner with our customers to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank and the thousands of people it serves. We work here, we live here, and our goal is to make a meaningful contribution to the people and the communities around us.
