Giving Tuesday 2020 is December 1st. People around the globe come together in unity and showing kindness and generosity in all its forms by giving their voice, time, money, goods, and advocacy to support communities and causes.
One Chosen Charity? Nope, there’s just too many worthy organizations in Chattanooga to pick only one! Adventure Sports Innovation (ASI) is still a small business with a small budget, but we use our creativity to find ways to give back to the community at every chance we get. We’ve built strong relationships with Chattanooga’s STEM School, other local schools and colleges, and organizations such as Blood Assurance and McKamey Animal Shelter. We frequently donate adventures or gift certificates to local non-profits for their silent auctions and fund-raising events (too many to list here!).
Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center (RRANC) is one of our favorite community partners and local non-profits.
Having hiked much of their extensive trail system as members, we thought this would be an ideal venue for our guests to test drive the unique Swincar electric off-road vehicle. After the RRANC team got to try it out, they agreed that the Swincar’s silent operation, light footprint and zero emissions made it a natural fit.
For every Swincar tour, a portion of the proceeds are donated to RRANC, which goes toward helping them maintain and conserve one of the most beautiful places Chattanooga has to offer. Arrive early for or stick around after your next Swincar tour to see red wolves, birds of prey, bobcat and more at the native animal exhibit. Or check out their selection of native plants in the nursery.
In fact, if you or your family were impacted by the Easter Sunday tornado, you can pick up free native trees from Reflection Riding to replace trees that you might have lost. This is part of larger effort with the city of Chattanooga to improve water quality, lower energy costs for Chattanooga residents, and maintain the long lifespan of our city’s storm water drainage system. There are only 1000 trees available, so pay our friends a visit while supplies last, and enjoy the last of the fall colors while you’re at it!
So, we’re hoping you will be as generous as possible this Giving Tuesday 2020, and we’d be delighted if our friends and customers remember RRANC when selecting the organization(s) they want to contribute to!
