Vhernier—the chic Italian jewelry brand that draws its inspiration from modern and contemporary art—is partnering with Feed the Children, an international nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger, to support vulnerable children and families across the U.S. during the unprecedented Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
And from April 15 to June 15, Vhernier has committed to donating 20 percent of jewelry sales to Feed the Children to support the communities in New York, Florida, and California.In response to the charitable venture, Vhernier President Carlo Traglio, said: “Morals and beauty are at the core of our company’s mission. In a time like this, every leader must think of ways to help those that are in dire need and at the top of the list are the children and families that cannot guarantee their livelihood.”
During these challenging times, Feed the Children will continue to provide food and essentials to its partners (like food pantries and soup kitchens) and is now exploring new ways to deliver much-needed supplies that adhere to CDC recommendations.
For the safety of the community, the nonprofit is working with several community partners throughout the U.S. to deliver boxes of shelf-stable food containing peanut butter, canned vegetables, crackers, bottled water, and baby food—as well as boxes of daily hygiene essentials containing lotion, shampoo, laundry detergent, toothpaste, and diapers, door-to-door to neighbors who need it most. Community partners are also providing an option for families to drive-thru to pick up supplies and a call-in number to ensure those who are homebound or quarantined receive the items they need.
Said Travis Arnold, Feed the Children president and CEO. “Feed the Children is taking action to ensure our neighbors aren’t forgotten. We understand that many Americans are facing unexpected challenges, and we are working diligently with our corporate and community partners to ensure that as needs rise, children and their families continue to receive the food and supplies they need.”
