Delivering Good & Disasters: Rebuilding and Providing Hope, Year After Year
The past several years, major catastrophic natural disasters, increasingly powerful in their devastation, have left a lasting impact on affected communities. Through the years, Delivering Good has been committed to assisting and supporting impacted communities for the days, weeks, months and years after our initial distribution of goods.
Recovery is a process of transitioning individuals back to their lives prior to the disaster and instilling a sense of normalcy in their day-to-day life. In 2018 and 2019, Delivering Good responded to the extensive destruction in areas such as Florida, North Carolina, California, Guatemala, the Bahamas and other regions around the world. These disasters not only resulted in millions of dollars in damage, but also hundreds of lives lost and the immeasurable toll on families that lost everything.
Delivering Good also continued its ongoing efforts in many areas - Puerto Rico, Texas, Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands, amongst others - impacted by natural disasters in previous years in order to assure communities a safe and hopeful road to recovery.
In 2019, Delivering Good assisted with recovery efforts for disasters that occurred during the year as well as ongoing support to communities impacted by the disasters that occurred in 2017 and 2018. By mobilizing the children's, fashion, retail and home industries, Delivering Good distributed new product valued at $32.5 million in 2018.
