Way to go, Gap: SF-based corp to make masks, garments for healthcare workers on the frontlines of COVID-19

By

San Francisco–based Gap Inc. has joined the ranks of major American corporations that are rolling up their sleeves in real wartime-effort fashion to help fight the COVID-19 crisis.

As fellow Bay Area company Tesla pitches in, along with General Motors, 3M, and GE, to make ventilators and respirators, the iconic clothing brand tweeted its response plan on Tuesday.


Gap Inc.'s factory partners will pivot to produce much needed masks, scrubs, and gowns for healthcare professionals on the frontlines, with plans to deliver these supplies to California hospitals, Business Insider reports.

In an earlier statement on March 17th, Gap Inc.'s incoming CEO, Sonia Syngal, announced a two-week closure of all its North American stores as well as continued pay and benefits for all employees.

Say thanks to Gap Inc. for being a great Bay Area employer (the company has been celebrated for its diversity, volunteerism, and sustainability efforts) and all-American treasure by shopping online at any of their brands, including Gap, Banana Republic, Athleta, and Hill City. There's a major sale on, y'all.
