Squamish Search and Rescue is sporting new threads after securing a deal with Helly Hansen.
On June 15, the outdoor brand announced that it will be partnering with local rescuers to become their official apparel supplier.
“Working with professionals is at the core of our business and partnering with Squamish SAR shows our commitment to their important work in the outdoor community,” said Philip Tavell, HH category managing director, mountain, in a news release.
“This partnership enables us to work closely with all their amazing members and use their knowledge and unique insights to innovate and create professional grade outdoor products.”
Rescuers expressed enthusiasm for the new partnership.
“Squamish Search and Rescue is excited to be partnering with Helly Hansen for our team's apparel needs,” said Cindy Welsh, director of Squamish SAR.
“We chose Helly Hansen not only for the performance of their apparel but, like us, they are committed to ongoing education around safety and preparedness in the mountain environment globally. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Helly Hansen as our team starts fundraising efforts for a new operational building for Squamish Search and Rescue.”
For a limited time, Helly Hansen will also be providing more than just clothes.
Helly Hansen Canadian team will be running an online promotion starting July 15 to July 19, 2021, where 5% of all Canadian e-commerce sales will be donated back to Squamish Search and Rescue.
