Gymboree and Mandy Moore Team Up to Give Back to Communities This Holiday Season — Retail Bum

Gymboree and actress Mandy Moore are continuing their partnership by helping children and families look and feel their best this holiday season.

“We could not be more honored to have hosted the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday season with the families of Union Station Homeless Services, Delivering Good, and Mandy,” said Maegan Markee, senior vice president of marketing at Gymboree.

Together, the duo will donate more than $500,000 worth of clothing and launch several Gymboree-branded wardrobe closets to families in need across the country. These efforts have also been made possible thanks to Delivering Good, a national nonprofit.

“Gymboree is committed to giving back to children and families in need, especially during what is often a difficult and financially straining time for many. We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Mandy and Delivering Good by giving back and spreading holiday cheer to families in need across the nation. From our family at Gymboree to yours, we wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season,” continued Markee.

To kick off the partnership this holiday season, Gymboree and Moore have already unveiled their first community wardrobe at Union Station Homeless Services in Pasadena, California.

At the grand opening, Moore was accompanied by the Gymboree team, Vince Adams, a board member of Delivering Good, and Merrie Keller, Delivering Good’s director of product procurement.

Gymboree noted that the families at the center were treated to personalized gifts, a meet and greet with Mandy Moore, a arts and crafts session, as well as a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

“The holidays are a time for joy, togetherness, and generosity and I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet and give back to the families of Union Station Homeless Services,” said Moore.

“I’m so excited to build upon my partnership with Gymboree to help others make magical memories this year. Spending the 2022 holiday season as a family of four will be an experience unlike any other, and moreover, knowing we are giving back to provide support to families across the country will surely make it a holiday season to remember.”

Gymboree plans to partner with Moore on launching an additional nine wardrobes throughout the holiday season that will be matched with organizations that are part of the Delivering Good network.

Gymboree’s collections are available in size newborn to 12 at the retailer’s website and in-store.
