Partnering for Distribution
We distribute the majority of our surplus inventory in the US through Good360, which partners with a network of local non-profits to reach people in need. Amazon is one of the biggest suppliers of donations to Good360, helping to provide items to low-income households, foster families, individuals with special needs or disabilities, senior citizens, veterans, immigrants and more.
In Europe, we partner with more than 100 charities and local organisations to distribute product donations. Amazon is a long-term partner of In Kind Direct International, a charity working across the UK, France and Germany to broker product giving among the members of its network. Through this partnership, we donated more than 200,000 products, including toys, shoes, clothing and household items, to 1,800 charities in 2020.
“Amazon donations are crucial in our ability to serve and support vulnerable communities in the US The wide variety of high-quality goods that we receive from Amazon allows us to get critically needed items into the hands of millions of people who really need them. These donations have been even more important in the face of the economic crisis brought on by COVID-19.”
