IRVINE, Calif., May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Through its Flourish Arbonne Foundation, Arbonne International LLC (Arbonne) is providing youth organizations across the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom with monetary support and essential resources to underserved youth experiencing homelessness.
The Foundation has raised $196,500 in donations from the Arbonne community, which Arbonne matched to provide $393,000 in monetary grant funding through the Flourish Arbonne Foundation to organizations serving homeless youth. The funds will help provide shelter, food, care and personal supplies to youth who depend on these organizations for a sense of safety and connection to community not just today, but every day.
In addition to the monetary donation, Arbonne has also donated 40,000 product donation packs made up of Arbonne personal care and nutrition products to these organizations. The product donation packs include items such as hand wash, hand lotion, protein bars, and in the U.S., newly manufactured hand sanitizer produced solely for the purpose of being donated. Each youth organization receiving monetary funding from the Foundation is also receiving these product donation packs, as are additional organizations in New Zealand and Poland.
The Flourish Arbonne Foundation is committed to building resilience in the minds of future generations, achieved through its mission to support the mental well-being of youth in the countries in which it operates. Arbonne is compelled to rally to action behind the Foundation in support of the organizations doing extensive work every day to support homeless youth.

"As a B Corporation, Arbonne is dedicated to using its business as a force for good in the communities where we live and work."
