15 Sep PRESS RELEASE — DXL Group to Support the Recovery Efforts in South Texas
Destination XL Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: DXLG), the leading retailer of men’s XL apparel, has teamed up with Good360®, the global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving, to provide $300,000 worth of apparel over the next 6 months to support the recovery efforts in South Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. It’s easy to feel disconnected and helpless when based across the country on the East Coast, but having over 60 field employees in the Houston area, this brings the tragedy closer to DXL Group’s home.
“Everyone at DXL Group has been deeply moved by the images coming out of Texas,” said David Levin, President and CEO of DXL Group. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this tragedy, and we are committed to helping them as they recover and rebuild.”
DXL Group’s $300,000 commitment will be in men’s apparel product to provide disaster victims with needed goods during the long rebuilding and recovery process after the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Good360 works with recovery agencies as well as with local recovery groups and nonprofits to determine exactly what families and individuals need, ensuring that DXL Group’s giving efforts are both effective and efficient.
DXL Group is no stranger to the Houston area. Houston makes up one of the strongest markets with 9 stores (DXL Men’s Apparel®, Casual Male XL®, Casual Male XL Outlet®). DXL Group is committed to returning the loyalty to its South Texas-based customers, by providing specialty niche clothing to those in need, thanks to their relationship with Good360.
“Through our DisasterRecovery360 initiative, Good360’s core focus is to ensure that we get the right goods to the right people at the right time throughout all stages of the recovery process,” added Richard Barney, EVP of Partnerships for Good360. “Our partnerships with local nonprofits serving the community and with corporations like DXL Group make it possible for us to move product to where it is needed most.”
Good360 is an organization currently engaged in disaster recovery efforts in Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and West Virginia, among others.
