Delivering Good Partners With Retailers To Donate $1M To Puerto Rico Recovery

Delivering Good Partners With Retailers To Donate $1M To Puerto Rico Recovery

Delivering Good, a non-profit devoted to helping children and families, has collected more than $1 million in new children’s apparel and other items to distribute to families in need in Puerto Rico. The island is still recovering from the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria: On June 1, 2018, the beginning of this year’s hurricane season, more than 11,000 people were still without electricity, eight months after the storm made landfall in September 2017.

During a trip that began on Oct. 18, the Delivering Good team is distributing apparel, lunchboxes and backpacks full of supplies in areas including Villa Palmera and Trujillo Alto. Retailers that donated products for this effort include:

Skechers;
Learning Express Toys;
Shelter Products;
Bioworld Merchandising;
Global Brands Group;
GTI Imports;
Bows Arts; and
Alternative Apparel.

In addition to distributing much-needed items, the trip provides an opportunity for Delivering Good to assess the specific needs of those affected by the hurricane. Trip participants include Lisa Gurwitch, President and CEO of Delivering Good; Karen Bromley, Principal, The Bromley Group; Taylor Gray, Treasure and VP, The Countess Moira Charitable Foundation; and Rita Polidori O’Brien, VP of Marketing and Communication at United Legwear & Apparel Co.
