PVH Corp donates one million dollars to COVID-19 relief efforts
The PVH Corp Foundation has announced it is committing one million dollars toward COVID-19 relief efforts, including a $100,000 donation to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Manny Chirico, Chairman and CEO of PVH, said: “As I work with our global leadership team to address a responsible plan forward for our business, how we execute it as good corporate citizens is an important part of our discussions. There is no roadmap for this crisis, but I know that at PVH we have strong values and connections to our communities."
As part of the immediate and ongoing funds to support the fashion industry and the communities where PVH operates, the fashion group will make additional contributions towards organisations that are addressing the needs of their global supply chain workforce.
In addition to the $1M commitment, PVH had also made a two million RMB (£222,300) contribution to the Chinese Society of the Red Cross as well as a $50,000 contribution to A Common Thread, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund initiative.
Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger have donated product in the US and Netherlands to support frontline healthcare workers and will have reaffirmed their commitment to continue to give products where it is needed the most around the world.
Calvin Klein is also a founding partner and donor of OutRight Action International’s COVID-19 Global LGBTQ Emergency Fund.
PVH Corp was one of the first to temporarily close stores as the coronavirus continued to spread. The company announced it was to immediately close all Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Speedo in Europe, US and Canada.
