Season of Giving
It’s the Season of Giving and we’re excited to share examples of how we’ve worked to help our community and ways you can help contribute to helping those in need.
For years, Persōn and Covey has donated thousands of sunscreens, shampoos, hand sanitizers, and more to non-profit foundations and the healthcare community to aid in times of need.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we rushed to develop quality hand sanitizer for our community and were able to donate over 20,000,000 4oz bottles across the United States!
Earlier this year we donated products to organizations focusing on health and hygiene like Adventist Health, MEND, and Clean the World.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve decided to participate in Giving Tuesday, this November!
We will be donating 10% of our profits made on 11/29/22 to MEND!
MEND is a non-profit organization based in the San Fernando Valley, dedicated to helping provide resources for impoverished families and individuals.
A message from MEND:
“For 51 years, MEND has continuously served a very vulnerable population of people in the San Fernando Valley who are predominantly low-income, people of color, and homeless or at-risk of being homeless. Through food distribution partners (faith- and community-based organizations) MEND’s services extend beyond the Valley and into the entire Los Angeles County. A majority rely on MEND’s Community Nourishment Programs for their primary nutrition needs. For many, our services are critical to their survival. A sad statistic: from our regular annual food survey; 49% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that without MEND they would go hungry.
The massive Community Nourishment Programs serve the community through a food pantry (direct distribution), food bank (distribution through faith- and community-based food pantries), Buen Provecho Farmers Market, and the Little Health Store. This combination of services in 2021 put 4 million lbs. of food in the hands and homes of poor Angelenos, translating to 3.2 million nutritious meals benefiting almost 300,000 food-insecure people – 180,000 were children.
First Step services have reopened every Thursday with direct and indirect services for people who are homeless. Every week unhoused clients receive a bag filled with non-perishable and nutritious food items, clothing if needed (jeans, tee shirts, something warm, etc.), hygiene items and information on other resources. Sometimes, simply sitting and talking with kind and compassionate staff is enough.
Because at MEND we believe a successful client is one who no longer needs our crisis services, we offer intensive, one-on-one supports through Here We Thrive, a case management program that includes Pathways to Wellness and Gateways Employment Services.
And lastly, MEND’s Hope and Care program focuses on community outreach to neighborhoods of greatest need, providing them with resources such as access to food; COVID-19 prevention, education, and vaccination; and referrals and assistance with applying for additional community services.”
Persōn & Covey is thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to our community and will continue to find ways to further support individuals and families in need.
