In Walnut Creek, we are fortunate to have a community that believes in the importance of education and that comes together to support our top-ranked schools. When choosing where to shop in Walnut Creek, won't you please consider these businesses' contributions to our community and show them your gratitude with your patronage!
Featured Partner: Sports Basement
Sports Basement is a sporting-goods retailer with multiple locations throughout the Bay Area. They are a community center, a hangout, a hub. Their mission is one of a virtuous circle; as the company grows and prospers so too should the communities that patronize those stores. Sports Basement has donated more than $1 million in cash, gift cards and in-kind donations to over 600 local schools since 2010!  At our last meeting, WCEF received $8,271 from the Basementeer program.

Are you a Basementeer? With all the sports and activities your family participates in -  you should be!  Basementeers save 10% on every purchase, in-store and online with 10% of profits going to WCEF. Click here to sign up  and select WCEF as your charity of choice.
Thank you for shopping with Sports Basement and supporting WCEF.
