Recognizing Our Clients’ Contributions
Valiant efforts are being made to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud to have had the opportunity to work with brands that are positively navigating the ever changing climate in order to best protect their employees, consumers, and communities.
Our fashion week partner, Skechers, has contributed to the COVID19 efforts by donating 4,000 respirator masks to health professionals in the South Bay area. The brand has also launched #SkechersSupportsEssentials, a social media campaign in which they donate shoes to essential workers who are on their feet all day to keep America running. In addition, they will be streaming a live workout led by Brooke Burke every Monday on the Skechers website and every Wednesday on @Skechers Instagram live to encourage America to stay active at home. Our Supper Suite partner, Kia Motors, has announced their "Accelerate the Good" program to assist existing and potential customers with additional support as it responds to the coronavirus pandemic. Supplemented support includes repair services and financing assistance. The company has also donated N95 face masks to local healthcare facilities. Sony has just launched a $100M fund to support those affected by the coronavirus. The Sony Global Relief Fund for COVID-19 will provide assistance in three areas: frontline medical workers and first responder efforts to fight the virus; support for children and educators who must now work remotely; and support for members of the creative community in the entertainment industry. Sony aims to take new initiatives that will lend support to the creative community; specifically creators, artists and all those in professions supporting the industry who have been impacted by the cancellation or postponement of live events, or the shutting down of film and TV productions.
Nordstrom, an A-List Supper Suite partner, has announced that it has partnered with Kaas Tailored to provide Providence Health & Services with more than 100,000 sanitized masks. Along with its efforts to ease the mask shortages, Nordstrom also said it closed all stores in the US and Canada while providing ongoing pay and benefits to all store employees impacted by the temporary closures. CEO Erik Nordstrom and his brother, president and chief brand officer Pete Nordstrom, both say they are declining their salaries from April until September, to benefit their people.
TO ALL OF OUR CLIENTS + ALL OTHER COMPANIES PROVIDING ASSISTANCE AND CARE TO THE COMMUNITY DURING THIS TIME, WE THANK YOU.
