YNAP donates its delivery fleet to deliver essential food and PPE equipment to those in need

YNAP has volunteered its Premier Delivery Service fleet to help seven local Age UK charities across London to deliver critical supplies to older people in Kensington, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Fulham, East London, Enfield, Camden, West London and Lambeth.

It has further extended its UK efforts to include a second initiative with the Emergency Designer Network (EDN), a volunteer-led collective of UK designers and manufacturers who are producing stocks of key PPE equipment like robes, face masks and scrubs.

YNAP’s fleet will help provide logistical assistance to EDN, transporting raw materials and finished products to hospitals.

Meanwhile in Milan, Italy, its Mr Porter fleet of zero-emissions vans which are due to begin making deliveries for the brand later this year, are helping the Italian Red Cross’s national programme “A time for kindness”, delivering essential supplies to elderly and other socially isolated communities.

In Hong Kong, YNAP is extending its support of homeless charity ImpactHK, helping deliver food packages and supplies to homeless citizens, while also offering support like counselling, financial advice and job opportunities.

According to the online fashion giant similar initiatives are being finalised in New York with more details set to emerge in the coming weeks.
