Columbia teams with responders to provide aid to Superstorm Sandy victims

Columbia Sportswear Company has actively supported Superstorm Sandy relief efforts by immediately matching all employee donations to nonprofit organizations responding to the disaster. We remain in regular contact with relief agencies to identify how we can provide additional support. We received a list of needed goods from these agencies, and felt that filling these needs was the most appropriate response. Thus far, we are proud to have donated 5,700 products worth over $160,000 to the American Red Cross to provide protection from the elements to those in need in New York and New Jersey.
