This holiday season, American Eagle and Delivering Good partnered to help provide clothing and goods to those in need including homeless and underprivileged. The brand designed a Holiday Capsule Collection, including shirts, hoodies and winter hats, with 100% of sales supporting our mission. Prior to this initiative, American Eagle has been a supporter of Delivering Good’s mission and has provided over 70,000 brand new hats, accessories and gift boxes to young adults across the country.
