Employees and partners of Vista Outdoor have donated more than $146,000 to the Veterans Community Project (VCP), a 501(c)(3) Missouri nonprofit corporation whose goal is to eliminate homelessness in the military veteran community. The funds were raised during a silent/live auction during Vista’s annual sales conference in Overland Park, Kan., headquarters to Vista brands Bushnell, BLACKHAWK!, Hoppe’s, Champion, Butler Creek and Uncle Mike’s. 

Founded by Kansas City veterans, VCP creates communities of “tiny-homes” and offers onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying causes of veteran homelessness. 

“We are so proud of our employees’ and partners’ generosity in supporting this important cause,” said Vista Outdoor Chief Executive Officer Chris Metz. “Vista Outdoor and its brands have a legacy of supporting the brave men and women who serve our nation, so this partnership with VCP was a natural fit.” Metz also said that Vista Outdoor strives to embody a culture of responsibility, and this was an ideal way to give back to one of the communities where they live and work.

Chris Stout, chief executive officer at VCP said he and the VCP staff were “blown away by the kindness and compassion of the Vista Outdoor team,” noting that it was the largest single-night fundraising event in VCP’s history. “We’re eager to use this donation to help more veterans overcome the challenges they’re facing,” he said.
