Gap Inc. has honored UPS with its inaugural Top Stitch Award, in recognition of outstanding contributions in helping Gap Inc. serve customers while exemplifying shared values and behaviors.
As part of the recognition, Gap Inc. is making a $100,000 donation in honor of UPS to Good360, a global non-profit leader that collaborates with businesses to source highly-needed goods and distribute them through its diverse non-profit network to support people impacted by disasters and other challenging life circumstances.
“When it comes to upholding our customer promise, we’re proud to work with partners who share our vision. Thanks to UPS, we were able to continue providing millions of customers with Gap Inc. products – including 29 million non-medical grade face masks – throughout the pandemic,” said Sonia Syngal, CEO at Gap Inc. “UPS embodies what it means to be a committed and reliable partner and I’m excited to recognize their tireless work with the first Gap Inc. Top Stitch Award.”
As the global pandemic unfurled, UPS was deemed an essential workforce and became an important lifeline for delivering items needed for daily life. UPS’s logistics expertise and ability to create agile transportation and distribution solutions allowed customers, like Gap Inc., to quickly pivot their businesses to meet changing customer needs resulting from the pandemic. UPS’s strong relationship with Gap Inc., and commitment to helping the company serve customers, allowed the two organizations to develop strategies and innovative approaches that brought Gap Inc. products successfully to the homes of its vastly expanding base of ecommerce customers.
“We, at UPS, appreciate this special recognition by Gap Inc. Our UPS heroes deliver for our communities and work hard to support our customers every day,” said UPS CEO Carol Tomé. “Along with our non-profit partner Good360, we’re working together to move our world forward by delivering what matters.”
