As the coronavirus spreads across the globe, many are stuck at home wondering how they can help. With businesses closing, and millions of Americans filing for unemployment, it’s hard to know where to go. So during these stressful times, it’s nice to know that certain companies are helping their workers and the ongoing relief efforts.
Plenty of businesses like Patagonia, Apple and Nike promised to pay their employees while physical stores are closed, and even more announced donations or the diversion of resources to help fight coronavirus. Apple donated $15 million, Gap is making masks and gowns for health care workers, Headspace has free meditation courses for employers and its employees and Rosetta Stone is giving three months of free language learning to all elementary, middle and high school students worldwide.
The list goes on and on of companies helping out, from L’Occitane making hand sanitizer, Uniqlo’s parent company enlisting manufacturers to make masks and Lucky Brand donating clothes and sanitary kits to LA-based community partners.
