NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2020/PRNewswire/ -- Avon announced today its support to those recently affected by Hurricane Laura. Nearly 2,000 Avon Representatives in Louisiana were directly impacted and Avon is sending special care packages to assist them at this difficult time. Each package will include a selection of essential personal care products such as soap, body wash, toothpaste and deodorant.
Avon's longtime partner, Feed the Children, is also working in the impacted region to provide disaster relief supplies to those who need it in both Louisiana and Texas. Feed the Children, a leading non-profit focused on alleviating childhood hunger, works closely with community partners to get Avon's product donations to displaced residents. They have alerted Avon to the most pressing needs of the most affected communities so it can send vital resources to help.
"Our hearts go out to all those affected by Hurricane Laura including members of our Avon family," said Avon CEO Paul Yi. "We hope our efforts can help provide some needed relief to those coping with the overwhelming conditions. We also appreciate the dedication of our partner Feed the Children who works continually to get our products to those who need them most at times like these."
In addition to care packages, Avon's customer care team will be assisting impacted Representatives with account support and there will be a phone option for calls to be routed to front of the queue for priority service.
