While retailers face a myriad of challenges brought on by the coronavirus (COVID-19), many are also wondering, “how can I help?”
That was one of the audience questions posed in this week’s episode of RIS’ #CurbThePanic webinar series. Some advice doled out by Lora Cecere, founder, Supply Chain Insights, was to mobilize to feed healthcare workers during this trying time. Sandeep Dadlani, chief digital officer, Mars, Inc. noted that donated masks can’t show up in pallets at healthcare facilities and companies can call their local county to see if they need help redistributing supplies.
To continue the conversation, RIS takes a look at how Starbucks, True Value Company, and Ashley HomeStore are finding ways to lend a hand during the coronavirus pandemic.
