Kudos to our Mississippi team for its volunteer work with Heartland Hands Food Pantry this summer. Since June, Helen of Troy associates from Olive Branch, Southaven, and Horn Lake locations have spent every Tuesday and Thursday pitching in at Heartland Hands. The team packs and loads boxes of food for those in need throughout DeSoto County, MS. In July, the team accumulated over 200 volunteer hours. 💪 It looks like they've enjoyed every minute of their time at Heartland Hands.😀 Great job team!

Happy #PrideMonth! 🏳️🌈 🏳️🌈 For Pride 2022, a group of Helen of Troy associates recognized the opportunity to create a theme encompassing the spirit of Pride Month and our culture of Curiosity, Mutual Respect, and The Power of ONE across Helen of Troy: Be You. Be Here. Belong. We are on a journey to create an environment where all associates, especially our #LGBTQ+ community, can bring their full selves to work each and every day; celebrating all identities, races, ethnicities, and cultures is crucial to making Helen of Troy better. To celebrate Pride Month, we’re hosting several virtual events for associates to share and learn with each other. Through our #GivingTogether program, associates can support non-profit partners fighting for equal rights, demanding an end to hate crimes and violence, and providing assistance to those in need. Stay tuned for more throughout the month! #WeAreHelenofTroy #ElevatingLives #SoaringTogether #Pride2022 #DEIB
