Chaco Gives Back 2013
The Sixth Annual Chaco Gives Back program returns to Whole Earth Provision Co. from June 22nd through July 7th. During these two weeks, for every full price pair of Chaco shoes and sandals purchased at Whole Earth stores, Chaco will donate $5 to the Friends of Enchanted Rock. The Friends are planning to use the money raised this year to publish an Enchanted Rock Climbing Guide that will be pocket-sized, easy to read and cover the trails, routes and ethics of climbing in the park.
Chaco Footwear, known for their ‘go everywhere, do anything sandals,’ is a very generous contributor to local causes. Since 2008, they have contributed almost $13,000 to the Friends of Enchanted Rock in response to purchases made at Whole Earth Provision Co. stores. The Chaco Gives Back funds have been used for several projects including retrofitting antiquated plumbing fixtures in the Park to low-flow water saving systems, providing funding for visitor trail maps, and improving the trail system by reclaiming areas where small game trails have turned into human ones, causing erosion.
