During this time, millions of Americans across the country are experiencing an increased need for essential products and supplies. As a purpose-driven company that believes in making cleanliness and sustainable living commonplace, Unilever believes it is our responsibility to do all that we can to ensure that Americans can thrive now and in the future.
United for America is a movement, ignited by Unilever, to unite to deliver food, medical supplies, hygiene and cleaning products, and other critical supplies to our nation’s aid organizations on the front line. By standing with and supporting these organizations, we can ensure that all those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis get the help they need.
We have made a long-term commitment to serve both the essential organizations on the front lines and the individuals, families and vulnerable populations affected most. But it’s more than just a commitment. It’s a promise to remain United for America.
United in Service
Unilever has kickstarted this movement with the first annual Day of Service on May 21st, committing product, time and gratitude to those affected by COVID-19. We’ve donated the equivalent of one day’s worth of the products produced at our factories to Feeding America and Direct Relief. Our corporate employees have spent time virtually volunteering with one of our partner organizations. We invite you to join us in sending letters of gratitude to your local Feeding America food bank volunteers. Together, we can have an even greater impact.
