// Yoox Net-A-Porter Group donates care packages to NHS staff, gathering 2200 essential items
// The care packages have been sent to 4 London hospitals for staff caring for ICU patients
Yoox Net-A-Porter Group has donated care packages to NHS staff on the front line of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In total, 2200 essential items were gathered for The Intensive Care Society (ICS) by the online retail giant and its brand partners.
The items have been compiled into ICS Wellbeing Packages for staff working in intensive care units across four London hospitals: St George’s Hospital, King’s College Hospital, Royal Free Hospital, and The Royal London Hospital.
The ICS Wellbeing Packages initiative aims to support the wellbeing and morale of NHS staff caring for ICU patients affected by the outbreak.
Essential items requested for the initiative and donated by the group include toiletries, t-shirts, pyjamas, socks and underwear.
This commitment is part of a broader programme of initiatives by Yoox Net-A-Porter Group to help its communities around the world.
It follows the Volunteered Vehicles initiative, where the company’s Premier Delivery service fleets support charity partners to deliver essential supplies to vulnerable communities.
To date, Yoox Net-A-Porter Group’s Volunteered Vehicles have made over 3300 deliveries of food, essentials and medicines through charities God’s Love We Deliver in New York, the Italian Red Cross in Milan, ImpactHK in Hong Kong, and seven local Age UK charities in London.
