The Belgian premium chocolate maker has also partnered with the Tenet Healthcare Corporation in the United States to donate over 600,000 pieces of chocolate to both hospital networks across the country.
“On behalf of Godiva’s chocolatiers around the world, I want to express our profound gratitude to the frontline hospital workers who are caring for our communities during this pandemic. We are in awe of their courage and selflessness, and forever thankful to these heroes. Our hope is that our product donations will give them a moment of comfort and relief during some of the most difficult days of their lives, ”said CEO Annie Young-Scrivner.
In addition to its contributions in the United States, Godiva said it has sent packages to hospital workers, doctors and nurses in hospitals and facilities in areas where the brand has a strong presence to support its local communities, including China, Belgium, United Arab Emirates (UAE), the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.
“Thank you to Godiva for this generous chocolate donation and for bringing a bit of light to our frontline workers during this difficult and unprecedented time. We are extremely proud of our teams and know they will appreciate this kind gesture and your message of love and support,” said Sandi Karrmann, EVP, chief human resources officer, Tenet Healthcare.
