We have been devastated as we’ve watched the rapidly rising cases of COVID-19 in India. Our hearts and thoughts are with everyone in the country, including many of our colleagues, friends and partners.
“The growing human impact of the COVID-19 crisis in India is very much on my mind, the minds of our leadership team and, I know, the minds of our employees — especially those who have friends and family in the region,” said Brian Tilzer, Best Buy’s chief digital and technology officer.
In response to the crisis, Best Buy is making a $20,000 donation to Project HOPE. This money will support the organization’s relief efforts in India, including providing urgently needed personal protective equipment (PPE), oxygen supplies, intensive care unit (ICU) equipment, ventilators and other critical items.
We will also remain in close contact with our business partners in the area to express our support and offer our assistance in any way we can.
