Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey (May 19, 2020) As part of its United for America initiative, Unilever is hosting its first annual Day of Service on May 21. The company will donate the equivalent of one day’s worth of the products manufactured at its U.S. factories to Feeding America and Direct Relief, employees will spend time virtually volunteering, and a network of 70 partners will join in relief efforts to support their communities.
United for America is a long-term commitment that Unilever U.S. launched in March to serve both essential organizations and the individuals, families and vulnerable populations affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The company pledged $20M in relief support as part of these efforts.
“We are only seeing the beginnings of the impact this crisis will have, and we are committed to providing access to food and household essentials Americans need,” said Fabian Garcia, president of Unilever North America. “I am so inspired by our Unilever employees who are taking action and I’m thankful that a number of organizations, individuals and partners across industries have joined us in support of this movement. Only by working together can we amplify our impact and help more Americans.”
