Just in time for Easter, The Children’s Place — a children’s specialty retailer headquartered in Secaucus — announced a collaboration between its Gymboree brand and actress, singer and philanthropist Mandy Moore, her son, Gus, and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, to support children and families in need.
“With Gus now over a year old, we can’t wait to share all the special memory making traditions Easter brings, from decorating eggs to egg hunts to leaving treats for the Easter bunny, with a special emphasis on providing support to those in need. We’re excited to join Gymboree this Easter in giving back,” said Moore, who plays Rebecca in the NBC drama “This is Us.”
Maegan Markee, Gymboree’s senior vice president of marketing, added, “We are thrilled to partner with Mandy Moore, her family, and Delivering Good, our long time philanthropic partner, to support children and families in need this season. Gymboree’s foundation is built upon capturing the essence of childhood. We recognize that childhood passes by in a moment, and because of this, we want families to capture the memories that will last forever.”
Delivering Good’s interim CEO Gary Simmons said, “For more than 35 years, we have been connecting the generosity of the retail industry with those who struggle with poverty and other tragedy. This donation will help ensure that families of all means will have the opportunity to celebrate the season with new attire for their children. While it may seem small, a new outfit for a child that rarely, if ever, receives something new can be a very big deal. We are grateful to Gymboree and Mandy Moore for helping us make the holiday a little brighter for the families and children we serve.”
