09 Oct PRESS RELEASE: Ramblers Way Provides Clothing to Hurricane Survivors
Kennebunk, ME — (October 9, 2017) Ramblers Way, the sustainable clothing company dedicated to making clothes in America, is donating nearly 5,000 items to the survivors of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, two of the largest hurricanes to ever hit the U.S. shores, as well as Hurricane Maria. The items include all season shirts for women and men, woven shirts for men and women, and men’s long underwear. The clothing will be distributed through a partnership with Good360, a global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving.
“All of us at Ramblers Way have been deeply moved by the devastation caused by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria,” said Tom Chappell, founder of Ramblers Way. “As the people affected by the storms begin to rebuild their lives, we want them to know we’re with them every step of the way, so we’re giving them some of what we do best – clothing. We hope it helps people start to get back on their feet.”
Ramblers Way clothing was uniquely developed as next-to-skin performance clothing that soaks up sweat, doesn’t itch or rub uncomfortably, and allows body odor to escape. The items are made in America from Ramblers Way’s ultra lightweight 4-ounce jersey knit, which is an ideal fabric for all seasons.
Good360 works with national recovery agencies as well as local recovery groups and nonprofits to determine exactly what families and individuals need, ensuring that Ramblers Way’s giving efforts are both effective and efficient. With a mission to transform lives by providing hope, dignity and a sense of renewed possibility to individuals, families and communities impacted by disasters or other challenging life circumstances, the organization has distributed more than $9 billion in donated goods around the world, helping its network of more than 57,000 prequalified nonprofits strengthen communities and improve the lives of millions.
“Good360 takes a long-term view of disaster recovery and our core focus is to ensure that we get the right goods to the right people at the right time throughout all stages of a disaster,” said Richard Barney, EVP of Partnerships for Good360. “Our partnerships with on-the-ground nonprofits will guarantee that Ramblers Way’s donated goods are distributed where they are needed most with a high level of efficacy and efficiency.”
