True to its name, MISSION and partner Drew Brees have been stepping up and giving back, and they are not slowing down. Having already donated 1 million meals through Feeding America and over $250,000 of MISSION Gear to help the Gulf Coast front-line workers clean up after the Hurricanes in the brutal heat; they recently announced their latest giveback by donating $1M of MISSION Gaiters to the YMCA to provide face covers for underserved communities across the country.

As a Partner in MISSION, I am honored to collaborate with the YMCA to donate $1M of MISSION Gaiters to support these communities in need across the United States.” —Drew Brees, MISSION Partner and NFL Champion


Throughout the pandemic, the YMCA has worked to meet the needs of the more than 10,000 communities it serves across the United States, providing childcare for children of first responders and essential workers, feeding children and families in need, sheltering at-risk populations, conducting wellness checks on isolated seniors and creating safe, supportive environments for school-aged children who are learning virtually.

“The Y is responding to the most pressing social needs of our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, just as we have done throughout our history,” said Kevin Washington, president and CEO of YMCA of the USA. “We are very grateful to MISSION and Drew Brees for making this generous donation and supporting the vital work of the Y during this incredibly difficult time for our communities.”
