TORRID and the TORRID FOUNDATION are part of a community that cares about women and their families, especially in troubled times like these. It’s in our DNA to help them. That’s why we have been working behind the scenes to find the right partner that can make a difference in our efforts as we extend a hand. That partner is YWCA and today, we are proud to announce that we have joined forces.
Why the YW? YWCA has been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements for 162 years advocating for women and their families. And now they are on the frontlines of this health crisis serving 2.3M women and girls in more than 1200 communities in the US, providing services and resources for many of the most vulnerable children, women and their families.
Women are at the core of this crisis and the TORRID FOUNDATION is helping on two critical fronts with a donation in support of YWCA COVID-19 Emergency Relief and Community Resiliency Fund. Our efforts will be dedicated to assisting with:
Supporting Domestic Violence Victims by Creating Capacity: In light of shelters overflowing, YWCA is charged with finding additional spaces that can be used as shelters that comply with CDC regulations. YWCA is currently finding alternate shelters by tapping local hotels and renting RVs as well as expanding through other housing mechanisms.
Providing for Childcare for First Responders: In support of essential workers who are giving their service and lives to help others, YWCA helps provide safe childcare centers for children whose parents are in the line of duty. Funds are allocated toward keeping these centers’ doors open and running during extended hours.
The TORRID FOUNDATION advocates for women of all races, ages and
sizes to help maximize their potential by supporting nonprofit programs and
organizations that educate and empower them.
