Partnering for Distribution
We distribute the majority of our surplus inventory in the U.S. through Good360, which partners with a network of local nonprofits 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, seniors, veterans, immigrants, and more.
In Europe, we partner with more than 100 charities and local organizations 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 product donations are crucial in our ability to serve vulnerable communities in the U.S. The wide variety of high-quality goods 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.”
