Customer Free Gift Donation:
In 2015, Storey Kenworthy brought together the philanthropic power of our customers, our vendors, and our employees to raise funds for Iowa-based non-profits. Employees are encouraged to nominate charities for which they are passionate and six organizations are selected on an annual basis as the focus of our corporate giving.

Our customers have the option to give back with us as well! Instead of choosing a free gift as a thank you for an order, they may choose instead to donate to the featured non-profit organization. Additionally, we partner with our vendors to provide free sample packs to customers. For each sample pack that is provided, the featured vendor donates $5 to the selected non-profit of the month.
