Our Commitment
to Community

In addition to our commitment to our customers and employees, we believe it’s important to give back through volunteering and charitable donations.

Make-A-Wish® Michigan Foundation

Each year Aleva Stores President Derek Gaskins puts on a golf outing for the Make-A-Wish® Michigan Foundation. He also participates in the Wish-A-Mile® Bicycle Tour every year, which is the single largest fundraising event for Make-A-Wish® Michigan. Aleva supports the Wish-A-Mile Bicycle Tour each year by donating custom Make-A-Wish socks for participants.

Pair with Purchase

House brand Stego makes a Charity Series sock, with 25% of the purchase price going to Make-A-Wish® Michigan. Additionally, house medical brand VenActive offers a One Pair Purchased, One Pair Donated program.

Health, Education and Welfare

Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) is a volunteer operated nonprofit based in Wisconsin founded by a breast cancer survivor who later developed lymphedema. HEW’s goal is to educate, encourage and empower those with lymphedema. Their Compression Garment Fund is Wisconsin’s first and only financial aid program helping Lymphedema survivors obtain their medically needed compression garments.

Ninjas Fighting Lymphedema

Ninjas Fighting Lymphedema is a nonprofit that was established by lymphedema patient and spokesperson, Amy Rivera to build the lymphedema community and give them a voice. NFLF helps patients, schools, hospitals, nonprofits and communities to better respond to the lymphedema epidemic. They educate, advocate and empower individuals and organizations to take an active role in creating awareness and spreading hope.
