Bed Bath & Beyond to Donate $10 Million in Products for Hard Hit Communities
Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ: BBBY) has announced a $10 million plan to donate essential items to those affected by COVID-19. The “Bringing Home Everywhere” program will deliver products that provide home comfort and essential support to communities and those on the frontline of the pandemic across the U.S. and Canada.
"Our homes have become even more central to our lives during this crisis, yet we know that for many people that sense of home has been affected by the health and economic impacts of COVID-19,” said Mark Tritton, president and CEO. “We're doing what we can to bring home everywhere, creating comfort and providing essential support to communities suffering in the face of this pandemic. So, whether it's fresh sheets, pillows and towels for people in the hospital or nursing care, food and home items for those in need, or toys or essential infant supplies for children, we will do what we can to make it easy to feel at home for those most in need at this time."
The Bringing Home Everywhere program is being launched in partnership with Good360, a global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving. It will leverage the unique range of home, baby & infant, health & personal care, and food & beverage products across the company's retail banners to provide essential items to some of the 90,000 charities in Good360's network.
"We know our loyal associates and customers are already doing what they can to support their local communities – and they can join our effort to Bring Home Everywhere by supporting the program and Good360 on our website," added Tritton.
"We are thrilled to be a part of the Bringing Home Everywhere program with our longstanding partner, Bed Bath & Beyond,” said Matt Connelly, CEO of Good360. “Together, we are proud to support our partner charities and those communities impacted by COVID-19 by bringing comfort through home goods."
