Supporting Our Community
1% of ALL Sales Benefit our Nonprofit Partners!
Second Gear is proud to 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 to 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, our nonprofit of the month 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.

This Month's Featured Nonprofit
Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservatory
Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservatory responsibly stewards protected lands and conservation easements, ensuring that the forests, streams, and farms we have protected will be here forever. Their volunteers help remove invasive species, build and maintain trails, and care for our preserves. They also convene partnerships to restore and effectively manage the fragile, globally significant ecosystems of the Highlands of Roan — the landscape surrounding one of the most scenic sections of the Appalachian Trail. Since 1974, over 75,000 acres of unique plant and animal habitat, clean water, farmland, scenic beauty, and places for people to enjoy outdoor recreation have been permanently protected in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. They invite you to join the effort! Your generosity, time, energy and ideas will help meet the challenges of protecting these magnificent natural resources for ourselves and for future generations.
