PROVO, Utah, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- COVID-19 has increased the global humanitarian needs, and Nu Skin employees and sales leaders are once again stepping up their efforts around the world to give back to those communities where they live and work. As part of the company's annual Force for Good Day, Nu Skin is sponsoring projects in markets where the company operates.
This year at Nu Skin's global headquarters, employees and their families are working on projects in their homes to benefit local schools and community nonprofit organizations. More than 5,000 items are being created to support 10 different projects including children's-themed facemasks for local preschools, face shields themed as astronauts and fish tanks and other creative environments for local elementary school kids and teachers, homework kits to support those not able to attend school regularly due to COVID, learning puppets for children with disabilities and meals for hungry families affected by COVID in the local community.
"This year's Force for Good Day will look different in each of our markets," said Ritch Wood, chief executive officer. "Even though we are not able to gather together as we typically do, we felt it was important to continue our tradition of giving back in our local communities. We remain committed as a global family of sales leaders, customers and employees to dedicating our resources and time to help those who are in need, while celebrating the impact we have had on hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Whether at home or abroad, Nu Skin always strives to be a force for good."
