In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Mary Kay Inc., its subsidiaries around the world, and along with its four Company-sponsored Foundations in Canada, Brazil, China and the United States, have taken the following actions targeted at supporting global and national relief efforts:

Supporting Domestic Violence Prevention and Response Needs:

The Mary Kay FoundationSM announced the opening of COVID-19 grant relief applications, offering unrestricted monetary grants for domestic violence shelters in need. Three local domestic violence shelters in or around Dallas (Denton County Friends of the Family, The Family Place and Hope’s Door New Beginning Center) received $25,000 each to support their emergency shelter services and impact programs. The Foundation also donated $75,000 to Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support and its Conference on Crimes Against Women efforts (CCAW) in collaboration with the Dallas Police Department, supporting the mission of ending all violence against women.
The Mary Kay FoundationSM, Independent National Sales Directors and Independent National Sales Directors Emeriti donated hand sanitizer to nearly 500 domestic violence shelters across the United States to ensure a healthy and safe environment for women and children seeking refuge from shelter-in-place orders that trap them in abusive situations. The nearly 500 domestic violence shelters support over 1.5 million women and children annually in the United States.

Supporting the Frontlines:
Coordinated with the Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) and Feeding America (a strategic collaboration addressing the COVID-19 crisis) to donate hand sanitizer to organizations in need.
Much needed hand sanitizer was donated to healthcare systems and hospitals in the top ten hardest hit cities in the United States.
Local support for areas surrounding Mary Kay’s global headquarters and manufacturing facility:

In an effort to support the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN), Mary Kay has made a donation of hand sanitizer to the Pan American Health Organization, Regional Office for the Americas of the World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO). The donation will support countries of the Americas in the response to COVID-19.
Mary Kay has donated hand sanitizer to CARE (an international humanitarian agency) to support its critically needed COVID-19 response efforts in 63 developing countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East regions combating the crisis with scarce resources.
