Sports Basement Raises $20,000 for Camp Fire Relief
The Camp Fire was the deadliest wildfire in California history. The smoky air outside of all our Bay Area stores was a constant reminder of the people directly affected by the fires, as well as the brave men and women fighting to contain them. We've never been a company that can sit back when our communities are threatened like this. From November 14th to December 31st, we began donating 5% of all of your purchases to fire relief efforts when you said “fire relief” at the register. And with your help, we raised $20,000 for Camp Fire relief efforts!
All donations raised were given to The North Valley Community Foundation. They are a resource to local community organizations and aided fire victims as well as first response agencies that were on the front lines fighting the fires.
