Columbia Sportswear and Planet Water Foundation have partnered together to provide clean drinking water for the communities where Columbia products are made. Since 2016, Columbia employees have volunteered their time to build 8 clean water drinking towers in these communities. Columbia is planning on building many more towers this year.
Now through May 31st our customers have the opportunity to make a donation at our registers. The proceeds will help build future towers in these communities. Every $1 donation provides safe, clean drinking water to one child for 8th months. Long term, each water tower provides clean drinking water for up to 1000 people a day.
