Dear Gymboree Family,
It's been a very difficult time for so many families, and we - as moms, dads, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, grandmas and grandpas, friends and neighbors - have felt the losses in our communities impacted by Superstorm Sandy. Our hearts and thoughts are with those who face the challenges in dealing with this storm's devastating aftermath.
Our first concern was to reach out to our immediate family of employees to help take care of them. We have been truly inspired by the thoughtfulness and determination that our employees have shown in the face of such hardship.
Next, we gathered input from our employees, particularly those hit hardest in the New York and New Jersey areas, to create a plan for support. We decided that the most urgent need was financial and that we should come together to give to the American Red Cross.
This weekend, we are asking you to please join us in raising $100,000 (or more!) for those affected by Superstorm Sandy. Visit any Gymboree store from Saturday, November 10th until Veteran's Day Monday, November 12th to make your donation. The Gymboree Corporation will match total in-store donations at all of its brands to the American Red Cross up to $50,000.
Many families in the affected areas are finding themselves without adequate clothing, so our donation to the American Red Cross will also include some of the essentials kids need. And to all our friends in the New York and New Jersey area, we welcome you and your children to stop in your local Gymboree Play & Music to warm up, chat and play awhile. Find a location near you.
We wish everyone the best in this time of need. Thank you for joining us in showing kindness and generosity to the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
All of us at Gymboree
