For their contribution to alleviate the coronavirus pandemic, PVH Corp.’s PVH foundation is donating $1 million USD toward COVID-19 relief, including a $100,000 donation to the UN Foundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, both owned by PVH, have also sent products to the U.S. and the Netherlands to support healthcare workers.
“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,” said Manny Chirico, Chairman and CEO of PVH. “There is no roadmap for this crisis, but I know that at PVH we have strong values and connections to our communities.”
PVH Corp. is set to deliver over two million units of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Montefiore Health System in New York City, including 3-ply masks and gowns. The American clothing company has also committed a $500,000 donation to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund’s A Common Thread intiative, along with a $275,000 donation to the Red Cross Society of China.
