The thoughts of our Homesense team in UK and our TJX family across the globe are with all those affected by the war in Ukraine. It is heartbreaking and devastating. As a Company, we stand with the people of Ukraine and everyone who is suffering.
To support the humanitarian relief efforts, the TJX charitable foundations have made the following donations:
The Polish Red Cross to support refugees fleeing the war including providing transport to safe accommodation and purchasing essential items.
The British Red Cross Emergency Appeal to help work on the ground in Ukraine.
The American Red Cross to support work in helping refugees displaced from Ukraine.
Save the Children to help their humanitarian work in Ukraine and surrounding countries.
World Central Kitchen to provide hot meals to families fleeing their homes at multiple border crossings.
The Canadian Red Cross’ Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal to support ongoing relief efforts.
We have provided local funds to support grassroots humanitarian activities nominated by our associates across Europe.
We have donated 100,000 units of essential personal protective equipment (PPE) to the Polish Red Cross.
We are working with local agencies who are finding employment for Ukrainian refugees in surrounding countries.
We are supporting our associates on the ground in the region and affected by this conflict in a number of ways, from counselling and practical help with documentation to grants and emergency leave.
Finally, we have instructed our buyers globally to stop all sourcing from Russia and Belarus. While we have historically bought only a very minimal amount of product from these countries, this is part of our commitment as a Company to stand with the people of Ukraine.
