This message was sent to all Gap Inc. employees.
Our hearts are with all those directly and indirectly impacted by the tragic events in Ukraine. With a reported 2 million people fleeing the violence and suffering in the region—most of whom are women and children with little more than the clothes on their backs—Gap Inc.’s brands will make a collective in-kind donation of more than $1 million worth of women and children's clothes to the UNHCR for communities in need.
We are also encouraging employees to contribute company-matched donations to USA for UNHCR, CARE and the International Rescue Committee.
As a values-led company, one that is proud to do the right thing over the past 53 years in business, at this time, we have also suspended deliveries to Russia, where we have a small franchise presence. We also have a handful of franchise locations in the Ukraine, which are currently closed, and we are working through our partner to account for the safety of those employees.
To learn more about our employee donation-matching program, visit bewhatspossible.com and check out our partners USA for UNHCR, CARE, and the International Rescue Committee who are currently responding either on the ground or are equipped to support refugee resettlement for Ukrainians.
Together, we’re proud to send love and warmth to Ukraine.
—Gap Inc. Leadership Team
UPDATED AS OF 3/22/2022: We are extending our relationship with the Tent Partnership for Refugees to help provide for the immediate needs of the 3.5 million refugees that have fled Ukraine. We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine — and all refugees displaced around the world — who dream of returning to a home that is safe and welcoming for all.
