Supporter Highlight: Hanes

Tuesday, August 18, 2020

 

Central City Concern (CCC) is grateful to Hanes for supporting our COVID-19 response efforts. In August, CCC received a donation of 3,000 dual piled cotton masks to support our personal protective equipment (PPE) distribution efforts.

All CCC’s programs have remained open to clients during the COVID-19 pandemic. While we have adapted our clinic operations to protect patients and providers alike, restocking critical supplies through normal channels has been a challenge. Which is why we greatly appreciate partners like Hanes.

Hanes has been a long-time supporter of CCC. Since 2017, CCC has been selected by Hanes to partner on their annual Hanes Sock Drive. Every November, Hanes donates 3,000 pairs of socks, which we then distributamong our clients, patients and residents.

This year, to ensure those in need have access to face coverings during the COVID-19 pandemic, Hanes is donating one million face masks to nonprofit organizations across the country supporting those experiencing homelessness. Working with long-standing partner Mark Horvath, founder of nonprofit Invisible People, which is dedicated to educating the public about homelessness, Hanes is supporting local homeless assistance organizations in all 50 states, including Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.

These masks will be distributed throughout all CCC operations. They underlie one of the key messages CCC has been amplifying to our staff, patients, residents and clients: we wear face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you, Hanes, for your continued support of Central City Concern and our staff, patients, residents and clients— let’s all stay safe!


“Hanes is thrilled to partner once again with Central City Concern, and applaud their important work, now more than ever, in changing lives every day by reaching out to the homeless community with help, hope and safety.”
