Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. will donate $1 million in home products to NAACP Empowerment Programs.
Bed Bath will donate essential items to the organization and its charity partners, supporting black communities impacted by COVID-19 and recent unrest across the U.S.
The donation is part of the company’s recently launched Bringing Home Everywhere program, a $10 million plan to provide home products to communities hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We welcome Bed Bath & Beyond’s support for the NAACP and the Black community. This $1 million donation of essential products will help communities in need and help bring home comforts to families across the nation who have suffered so much as a result of COVID-19 and recent unrest,” said Derrick Johnson, president and chief executive officer of the NAACP, in a prepared statement. “We look forward to developing a long-standing relationship with Bed Bath & Beyond as we commit to the shared vision of eradicating racial injustice and discrimination.”
Since the inception of the Bringing Home Everywhere program, Bed Bath has donated home, infant, health and personal care items to Good360 and many of its 90,000 charity partners across North America.
Associates and customers can donate to the NAACP directly via the Bringing Home Everywhere page.
