Abercrombie & Fitch Co. announced their partnership with World Vision, a global humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and communities to tackle the causes of poverty.

Abercrombie & Fitch began working with World Vision in 2013 and contributes to the organization’s Gifts in Kind program. This allows A&F to donate unused and undamaged product to people in need. In 2013 Abercrombie & Fitch sent over $2 million in product. A&F has committed to donate product valued at over $3 million during 2014 and looks forward to a long-term relationship with World Vision.

“We are inspired by World Vision’s dedication to providing aid for children and families in need and want to do our part to give back,” said Shane Berry, Vice President of Sustainability for Abercrombie & Fitch. “Our ongoing partnership with World Vision is a great opportunity for A&F to lend our support to this terrific cause.”

“World Vision has already received a large amount of quality product from the Abercrombie & Fitch brands and we look forward to working together to improve the lives of children around the world,” said Jeff Fields of World Vision. “We know these donations will have a lasting impact in the communities we serve worldwide.”

This partnership is part of A&F’s overall philanthropic commitment to give back and make a positive impact in communities around the world.
