LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Herbalife Nutrition (NYSE:HLF), a premier global nutrition company whose purpose is to make the world healthier and happier, today announced an extension of its 20-year tradition of supporting the American Red Cross and in turn, the people they serve. In addition to committing, for the fourth consecutive year, to donate Protein Deluxe Bars with a total retail value of $500,000 to 120 Red Cross blood donation centers across the U.S., Herbalife Nutrition employees and independent distributors will continue to participate in Company-hosted blood drives.
“Our partnership with the American Red Cross is built on the shared principles and values of helping others, and we look forward to further collaboration in providing nourishment to those who donate blood throughout the year and to survivors and victims of disasters,” said Alan Hoffman, president of the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation.
Most recently, Herbalife Nutrition independent distributors and employees generously participated in U.S. and international relief efforts, helping people affected by disasters including Hurricanes Florence, Irma, Maria and Harvey, as well as the California wildfires.
“We are grateful for our longstanding partnership with Herbalife Nutrition, whose generous support of the American Red Cross mission helps save lives,” said Cliff Numark, senior vice president of American Red Cross Biomedical Services. “Herbalife Nutrition’s commitment makes a meaningful and compassionate difference, inspiring others to give the gift of life and to alleviate suffering in times of crisis.”
For over 20 years, blood donations from the more than 50 Company-hosted blood drives, combined with the donations collected on the Herbalife Nutrition bloodmobile that covers Southern California, have saved countless lives. Also, since 2008, an Herbalife Nutrition executive has actively participated as a member of the board of directors of the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region.
“Herbalife Nutrition provides leadership in their communities and has helped the Red Cross deliver hope and support to those who need it most,” said Jarrett Barrios, CEO of the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region. “We are very thankful for their continued support of our live-saving mission here in Los Angeles and across the country.”
