Good360 Distributes More Than $125 Million in Needed Goods During COVID Response


ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --  Good360, the global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving, today announced that the organization has surpassed the milestone of more than $125 million in donated goods in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through both product and monetary donations from some of the world's best-known brands, Good360 works with their vetted network of more than 90,000 nonprofit partners to get highly needed products to people in need.

"With tens of millions of Americans out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a tremendous need for essential goods," said Matt Connelly, CEO of Good360. "Thanks to our amazing corporate donors and nonprofit partners, we are able to support a wide variety of needs during these difficult times."

A recent study conducted by Good360 and Morning Consult found that essential goods are highly needed by Americans and their families during these challenging times. According to the study, the top four 'most helpful' products are paper goods, cleaning supplies, medical/wellness items, and hygiene and personal care products, but school supplies, clothing, household goods, and technology items are also in high demand. The study also found that 84% of respondents believe it is important for companies to donate essential items to individuals in need, and 69% report they would be more likely to purchase from the companies that donate these products.

To help meet the needs of those who are struggling because of COVID-19, Good360 is currently working with dozens of corporate donors on various programs. While they differ in size and scope, these initiatives all have the same mission?to help those affected by the pandemic.

Examples of Good360's COVID relief programs include:
