Delivering Good Announces $100,000 Grant from the Aerie Real Foundation to Help Build Confidence in Women Impacted by Poverty

AEO Inc.’s Unsubscribed Brand Will Also Donate 25% of Sales on Giving Tuesday

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2022-- Delivering Good announced that on Giving Tuesday it has received a $100,000 grant from the Aerie Real Foundation to help build the confidence of women impacted by poverty and tragedy. The grant will enable Delivering Good to distribute more than $1 million of merchandise donated by retailers and manufacturers through its nationwide network of community partners. American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) Inc.’s slow-fashion brand, Unsubscribed, will also donate 25% of Giving Tuesday sales to Delivering Good.

“AEO and Aerie have a long history of supporting Delivering Good and we’re honored to continue partnering with the organization to make the world a more positive place by inspiring and building confidence in women,” said Jennifer Foyle, President, Executive Creative Director, AE and Aerie. “When you look good, you feel good, and we’re thrilled to help provide new clothing to those in need, while furthering the #AerieReal movement and empowering women to love themselves, inside and out.”

Since 2019, AEO, its brands and customers have donated more than $1.1 million to Delivering Good, in addition to merchandise to support homeless and underprivileged youth. The latest grant from the Aerie Real Foundation builds on AEO’s long history of supporting the organization’s mission and follows Aerie’s recent donation of more than 150 cartons (13 pallets) of new merchandise to the nonprofit.

“Delivering Good is in a special situation, as we operate at the intersection of social impact and environmental responsibility, ensuring clothing and other products are donated to people who need them rather than being discarded,” said Matthew Fasciano, Delivering Good’s President and CEO. “We’re so grateful for our longstanding partnership with AEO and its brands and to be chosen as an Aerie Real Foundation Signature Grant recipient, which will help us continue to positively impact people’s lives, while also giving retail companies an opportunity to donate products and operate more sustainably.”
