Every year, P&G facilities receive donation requests for products and other items from consumers, external organizations, P&G employees, customers, teachers, students and other groups all over the world. While the global scope of our business elicits numerous requests for assistance, it is economically impossible to take part in all the opportunities brought to our attention.
There is no fair way to select some groups for assistance without denying others that are equally deserving. So after careful research, P&G has determined the best way to handle product donations is to work through pre-identified, capable partner organizations that have the facilities, scale, and training required to distribute significant quantities of donated product to nonprofit affiliated agencies within each country.
In the U.S., the primary organization we have chosen to work with is Feeding America. Feeding America has more than 200 member free stores serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. They are able to distribute P&G products through a nationwide network of approximately 61,000 assistance agencies, pantries, emergency shelters, senior care facilities, after-school programs, and mobile pantries. In other parts of the world, we work with local partners in our P&G communities to donate available product.
The Iams Company only provides product support in response to disasters and cruelty cases. Call Iams Consumer Care at 1-800-525-4267 or make your request on-line at IAMS.com.
P&G has an ongoing partnership with the USO (United Service Organizations Inc.), a nonprofit organization that provides programs and services for United States military personnel and their families.
P&G does not make donation of product for conferences or conventions.
