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
Bounty & Soul
For the month of October, Second Gear is proudly partnering with Bounty & Soul in Black Mountain, NC! Bounty & Soul is a nonprofit organization offering weekly fresh produce markets paired with interactive health and wellness classes for adults and children. Prior to COVID-19, five weekly fresh produce markets were offered. In light of the recent public health crisis, Bounty & Soul has pivoted their model to meet the growing needs of the community to a drive-thru distribution model that operates twice a week. Participants receive pre-packaged boxes of food, like a free CSA and still have access to education and resources that are included in the boxes as well on their social media and website. Bounty & Soul serves over 94,000 people annually.
