It’s our ethical duty as a nation to make these much-needed changes an urgent priority.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (PRWEB) June 18, 2020
Uniform Advantage (UA), a multi-channel retailer of medical uniforms for medical and hospitality industries, will be donating $75,000 to non-profit organizations, as well as launching new initiatives to help end racial barriers.
As recent events have unfolded, it’s clear that racism still exists in the day-to-day lives of Black citizens. Uniform Advantage formed a committee of Black UA team members, comprised of employees from the corporate office, distribution center and stores, to recommend non-profit organizations supporting local communities or those focused on national change that can make the most impact with respect to anti-racism.
With a diverse management team, employees and customer base, Uniform Advantage Brands has always been a company where all voices are heard and valued. Uniform Advantage’s mission for the past 35 years has been to serve those dedicated to caring for and serving others.
“After meeting thousands of dedicated healthcare, food service and hospitality professionals over the years, I’ve seen first-hand the long grueling shifts you work and the sacrifices you make,” said Susan Masimore, Chief Executive Officer of Uniform Advantage. “It’s our ethical duty as a nation to make these much-needed changes an urgent priority.”
Uniform Advantage also decided to add Juneteenth as a paid holiday for its team members on Friday, June 19th and annually hereafter to honor and celebrate this special day in history recognizing the emancipation of American slaves.
