Second Gear is proud of be an integral part of our Asheville outdoor community. Being consignment based, we rely heavily on locals as partners in our business, and we strive to give back to the community in many ways. In addition to participating in local fundraisers, hosting adoption days with Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, and donating numerous raffles and silent auctions, we also choose a select number of nonprofit organizations to be our nonprofit of the month.
In addition to being featured on our website, this organization is showcased in-store and in our local advertisements, is invited to hold an event at our store, and receives as a direct donation a percentage of the sales for the month. If you are interested in our nonprofit program, please contact us via email.
