Delivering Good Calls for Donations to Help Hundreds of Thousands of Families Forced from their Homes
Unites the Industry In Response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma
Dear Industry Friends,
Since 1985, Delivering Good (formerly K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers) has been a leading force for mobilizing new product donations from hundreds of companies large and small, bringing hope, dignity and self-esteem to people impacted by poverty and tragedy.
In the past two weeks, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have devastated Texas, Florida, the American Southeast, and the Caribbean. As a result of these disasters, hundreds of thousands of families have been forced from their homes, and over half a million people are seeking aid and relief.
During the last several days alone, more than 150 companies have come forward to contribute new adult and children’s clothing, footwear, home furnishings, and other basic necessities for hurricane victims. Delivering Good’s experienced staff is working swiftly with our vetted local agencies to get these goods to those who need them in the ravaged communities, but more help is essential.
You can be confident in our staff’s experience to work with over 900 community partners to get donations efficiently and effectively to those in need.
Every item and dollar you give will help to rebuild lives.
Our hearts go out to the many victims of these storms – including the friends, families, employees and associates of many in the fashion, home, and children’s communities. Thank you for your support at this time and throughout the year.
