Perry Ellis donates apparel through GIKI

Sep '05
US based fashion designer Company Perry Ellis International Inc is pleased to announce that it has shipped apparel with a wholesale value of over $450,000 to victims of hurricanes Rita and Katrina. Perry Ellis International's donation is being directed to Ft. Worth, Texas through Gifts In Kind International (GIKI), the world's leading charity in product philanthropy. 'Hundreds of their employees in South Florida and Tampa have experienced the aftermath of a hurricane first hand,' said Perry Ellis International Secretary and Treasurer Fanny Hanono.

'They understand the importance of corporate giving and are pleased to make a significant contribution. Their company is well-known for its philanthropy, including their longstanding relationship with the United Way.'Perry Ellis International shipped apparel from its distribution centers in Miami and Tampa, and included merchandise from its New York showrooms.

Gifts In Kind International, a nonprofit organization that provides products donated by many Fortune 500 companies to assist those in need, manages a collaborative emergency relief plan that directly connects community needs with corporate product giving. After contacting its charity partners in the affected areas to create a list of needed items, GIKI then contacts its donor companies and business association partners for their involvement.

'Their outreach efforts would not be as far reaching without the support, generosity and sense of immediacyoffered by GIKI's corporate partners like Perry Ellis International,' said Barry Anderson, CEO, Gifts In Kind International. 'Along with their unwavering dedication, GIKI will continue to serve those in need during this emergency relief period and beyond.' To date, GIKI has established 30 donation and relief centers, which are managed by local Gifts In Kind programs, strategically located in the Gulf coast region.
