During the Vista Outdoor Sales Conference held in Park City, Utah, 150 Vista Outdoor employees assembled 70 bicycles for the National Ability Center. Employees from various Vista Outdoor brands comprised build teams, such as Savage Arms, Federal Premium, Primos, BLACKHAWK! and others. The company donated the assembled bicycles, along with 70 CamelBak water bottles and Bell and Giro bicycle helmets.
“Seeing employees come together to give of their time, to problem solve (bike building was a first for many of them), and to strengthen internal relationships was rewarding for all of us,” said Amanda Covington, SVP for Communications and Government Relations. “Following the activity, several employees asked how they could get personally involved with the National Ability Center. This is what Vista Outdoor’s value of Responsibility is all about!”
The National Ability Center is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower individuals by building self-esteem, confidence, and lifetime skills through sport, recreational and educational programs. Founded in 1985, the organization has united around a collective vision to inspire individual achievement and create a global impact for people of all abilities.
“Giving back to communities where we live and work is a core value for Vista Outdoor and a part of our company culture,” said Dave Allen, Senior Vice President of Sales. “We believe the sales conference was a natural time to bring our team together for this worthwhile cause. We’re proud to partner with the National Ability Center and to provide equipment that will make a real difference in the lives of people in need.”
