Perry Ellis Does Good Things for Great Reasons

When it comes to corporate social responsibility, Perry Ellis is raising the bar. The company prides itself on giving back to the communities they do business in, and the company takes great pleasure in the fact that many of their associates feel just as passionately. Because of this drive to help those in need, PEI associates have created an internal Community Action Committee (CAC), which has been incredibly successful in philanthropic initiatives in cities such as Miami, Tampa, New York, Los Angeles and beyond.

The goal of the CAC is to raise money, materials and awareness for various community events and non-profit groups through bake sales, sample sales, volunteerism, food drives and more. In the last couple of months alone, PEI has participated in the March 19th South Florida AIDS walk, the April 30th March of Dimes March for Babies, the New York 5K REVLON Run/Walk for Women with cancer, the Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup, and a city park clean-up effort with NY Cares. These altruistic individuals also worked to sponsor the Miami Museum of Science’s First Annual Great Energy Challenge, donated t-shirts to the Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build, and raised money for the American Heart Association, Ronald McDonald House, the United Way and other non-profit organizations.
