Last month, PathFinders welcomed volunteers from PVH, one of the world’s largest apparel companies, to prepare maternity supply packs for the mothers and babies that PathFinders helps.
The afternoon started with a short video and introduction to PathFinders services, giving PVH employees a chance to learn about the problems PathFinders’ clients face.
After the presentation, it was time to start preparing the supply packs. These packs are essential for new mothers the first few weeks after giving birth. Volunteers were given a check list of supplies to include and were tasked with presenting the pack as a gift.
To complete the supply packs PVH volunteers wrote caring, supportive personal messages congratulating the new mothers and wishing them and their new babies well.
A huge thank you to all the PVH volunteers for their enthusiasm and skilled packing techniques – we could tell they brought their fashion retailing skills with them! Thanks to their efforts, 20 new mothers and their babies will now have everything they need in the crucial first few weeks after birth.
