UNIQLO Donates 20,000 AIRism Innerwear Products to New York Healthcare Workers

Including sleeveless tops for women and short sleeve shirts for men.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, UNIQLO USA has donated 20,000 units of AIRism innerwear products to healthcare professionals in New York as a gesture of gratitude for those working the frontlines. Hiroshi Taki, CEO of UNIQLO USA said in a press release:

“UNIQLO wishes to take this opportunity to share our heartfelt thanks for all hospital workers and first responders who are on the frontlines to combat this crisis. New York is our home where we first opened our doors in the U.S., and the most vulnerable region in the U.S. affected by the virus. We are honored to show our appreciation for their tireless and heroic work to keep our community safe, with apparel designed to make their daily life a little more comfortable.”

The 20,000 units that have been donated to the Montefiore Health System and NYC Health + Hospitals include AIRism sleeveless tops for women and short sleeve V-neck shirts for men. For those who aren’t familiar, AIRism is an “ultra-thin and breathable fabric that wicks moisture, releases heat and absorbs sweat to prevent overheating.” Additionally, its anti-microbial and self-deodorizing properties will help keep the medical professionals comfortable throughout the day.

Fast Retailing and UNIQLO are currently exploring additional ways to provide further support to those affected by the crisis across the globe. In case you missed it, Fast Retailing donated 10 million medical masks last month to high-priority hospitals.
