Columbia Sportswear store hosts Shade Tree Clinic clothing drive; employees get 20% discount

The Columbia Sportswear store at 330 Franklin Rd, Suite 899D, in Brentwood, is hosting an in-store sun protective clothing drive Aug. 7-20 on behalf of the Shade Tree Clinic. The drive coincides with the Columbia Summer Sale event and VUMC employees receive an additional 20% off in-store, and up to 50% off select gear. No coupon necessary for in-store offer. No additional discount applied. While supply lasts. Subject to change. See store for details.

Shade Tree Clinic is VUMC’s student-run, free clinic that serves Nashville’s uninsured, and the clothing drive aims to provide patients with resources for protection from the sun’s harmful effects with the donations collected during the event. Requested donations include any new or gently used sun protective clothing items, such as long-sleeved shirts and wide-brimmed hats, with ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) rating. Sun protective items will be available for purchase in-store or items purchased elsewhere can be brought to the store and dropped off at an in-store donation collection bin.
