Community Outreach

Helping Neighbors Around the World

Our employees believe strongly in giving back to the community. So our company focuses on the programs and issues Lands’ End employees care about most. And they care a lot.

Their passion means our company supports a number of community events‚ local churches‚ veterans’ organizations‚ homeless shelters and more. We’ve built homes, donated equipment to schools and scrap fabrics to charitable quilters. We match our employees’ fundraising efforts‚ and we’ve cast Humane Society dogs in our catalog shoots to highlight the benefits of adoption.

Lands’ End even helps employees connect with volunteer opportunities in their hometowns‚ and we honor the time they give with our matching contributions program.


Disaster Relief

Lands’ End regularly donates nearly $5 million of new and used merchandise each year to local and global nonprofit organizations. This is especially true when natural disasters strike in the United States and around the world. Acting as a company‚ we readily deliver in-kind contributions of clothing wherever it’s needed. Acting as a community‚ our employees often come together to do even more.

When Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast, Lands’ End partnered with the American Red Cross to deliver a 53-foot truck filled with winter weather items. We collected 4‚500 pairs of shoes for Haiti earthquake victims through the nonprofit organization Soles4Souls. And when earthquakes and a tsunami struck Japan‚ Lands’ End employees around the world raised money and worked together to send victims clothes and blankets‚ paper goods and drinking water.


Lasting charitable partnerships

We often partner and sponsor with local and national not-for-profit organizations to raise awareness of important issues‚ do some collective good and help people in need. Many of these relationships go back for years‚ reflecting our employees’ deep commitment to challenges like education‚ the environment‚ homelessness and more.

In 2010, Lands’ End became the key sponsor of the Clean Lakes Festival. We fund school wish lists at DonorsChoose.org‚ and have a long-standing connection to the Hodan Center of Mineral Point‚ Wisconsin‚ which provides support and work for disabled adults.

Our international offices also give back to in their communities‚ donating to dozens of charitable organizations. Lands’ End Germany supports the Susan G. Komen: Race for the Cure‚ providing T-shirts and caps for survivors and sponsoring a sand-sculpting competition for kids near the racing route. While our UK office sends clothing to children in Uganda and Romania‚ and supports Rutland Friends of Cancer‚ British Red Cross and the Heart Foundation.

Behind the Label

Saluting one who served: While ordering a cute navy tote‚ one customer explained the purchase was a Memorial Day gift for herself. After all‚ she’d served in the military. For our Customer Care Specialist Joanne‚ thanking the woman for her service wasn’t enough. So she added a beach chair and necklace to the order. Happy Memorial Day!

A half-century of doing our very best makes for a lot of good stories.
