Old Navy Aids In The Continuing Recovery Of The Philippines

Old Navy announced today the donation of more than 100,000 articles of new clothing to the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan that hit the central and southern islands of the Philippines in November 2013.

“At Old Navy, we want to do more than sell clothes and we are committed to supporting the communities where we do business,” said Robert Frank, Executive Vice President, Old Navy International.

Old Navy is opening two new stores - its first ever franchise locations - in Metro Manila in March 2014 through franchise partner Stores Specialists, Inc. “It is indeed heartwarming to know of Old Navy’s plan to reach out to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan via the donation of clothing. We are grateful for their generosity and their desire to support the Philippine community in this way,” added Old Navy franchise partner Anthony Huang, Executive Vice President, Stores Specialist, Inc.

New clothing for the whole family - infants, children and adults - chosen for its suitability for the Philippines’ tropical climate is being shipped to the Philippines and will arrive in February.

Old Navy is partnering with International Relief and Development (IRD), a non-profit with staff that has been on the ground since the first days after the storm’s devastation. The clothing will be distributed directly to typhoon-affected families through IRD’s extensive local network of partner organizations and municipal government agencies.

In addition to Old Navy’s support, Gap Inc. employee donations to CARE to support relief efforts were matched by the company and totaled more than $95,000. The Gap Foundation gave a $65,000 grant to CARE to facilitate long-term recovery and resilience through shelter, infrastructure, and economic development.

“Our investments in communities affected by a disaster focus on long-term recovery and helping to address the needs of those impacted once widespread attention has passed,” said Bobbi Silten, President of Gap Foundation. “Our partnership with CARE to support survivors of Typhoon Haiyan will help rebuild communities and create long lasting change in the region.”
