Melville-based Henry Schein announced that its Henry Schein Cares Pack Program, a global cause-marketing campaign to engage healthcare customers, including dentists and physicians, reached more than 27,000 Ukrainians who have been affected by the current humanitarian crisis.
As a result of the campaign, more than 200 Henry Schein healthcare customers purchased $10 hygiene packs, which included toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, and shampoo, and were packed by more than 300 Team Schein members, customers, and their families and friends.
“For more than 20 years, Henry Schein has had emergency preparedness and disaster response as a core focus area,” David Kochman, chief corporate affairs officer at Henry Schein, said in a company statement. “Through Henry Schein Cares, our global corporate social responsibility program, our goal has always been to provide health care supplies to our long-standing non-governmental partners, and to help those most in need. This year, that need is and continues to be in Ukraine. Through a simple hygiene kit, we hope it offered a small boost to morale, self-esteem, mental health, and overall health.”
Nonprofit partner MedShare, worked with local partners such as Razom for Ukraine, RescueNow, and International Medical Corps to distribute the kits directly to beneficiaries in Ukraine and Poland.
