While many of us are quite lucky to be hunkering down at home during this worldwide quarantine, some folks don’t have that same luxury. It’s been so beautiful to see how brands across the world and right here at home have come together to do what they can for healthcare workers, frontline workers, and the community. To help out during these unprecedented times, H&M Canada has partnered with Women’s Shelters Canada to do its part.
The retailer has just announced that through Women’s Shelters Canada, it’ll provide 20,000 garments across the country.
It’s an unfortunate reality, but domestic violence is increasing significantly and this generous donation will help those who are vulnerable. The product donation will include a mix of clothing for women and children ranging in sizes.
In addition to this major donation, H&M has also taken steps to help in the fight against COVID-19.
In March, the retailer quickly jumped into action by arranging for its supply chain to start producing personal protective equipment (PPE) that would be given to hospitals for healthcare workers around the world.
“The Coronavirus is dramatically affecting each and every one of us, and H&M Group is, like many other organisations, trying our best to help in this extraordinary situation. We see this is as a first step in our efforts to support in any way we can. We are all in this together, and have to approach this as collectively as possible,” said Anna Gedda, Head of Sustainability H&M Group in a release.
And if that’s not enough, H&M also made a donation of $500,000 to the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
