SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) announced the activation of the company’s entire portfolio of brands today to assist with the relief and recovery efforts of No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America. As the coronavirus closes schools nationwide, millions of children across the U.S. are losing access to the school meals they depend on. Williams Sonoma, West Elm, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Teen, Pottery Barn Kids, Rejuvenation and Mark & Graham are now soliciting donations online and raising awareness for No Kid Hungry to help ensure that millions of kids get the meals they need during school closures and all year long.
“Williams Sonoma has worked with No Kid Hungry for almost ten years, driven by a shared belief that no child in America should go hungry,” said Laura Alber, president and CEO of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. “We are proud to now have our entire family of brands join a coalition of devoted teachers, chefs, community leaders, parents, lawmakers and like-minded corporations that are dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America.”
“Williams-Sonoma, Inc. has been a dedicated, steadfast partner for a decade. So, it’s no surprise that when America’s kids and families need them most, they are stepping up. Their company-wide support helps ensure kids get the critical food they need during this unprecedented crisis and after,” said Billy Shore, Executive Chair, Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign.
