Supporting Our Communities Amazon’s culture is built around solving impossible problems—a culture we know has the power to drive meaningful change. We look to leverage our scale for good and use our ability to innovate quickly to strengthen communities around the world where our employees live and work. Our Approach Working alongside community partners, we create solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges and build long-term programs that have a lasting, positive impact. We work to address immediate needs, such as reducing hunger and homelessness, providing affordable housing, and serving communities in need following natural disasters. We also look to the future, by providing programs that support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education and skills training. Access to Food and Basic Needs We help address urgent issues faced by children and families from underserved communities by improving access to food and basic necessities. We leverage our logistics network to support food banks and community organizations, delivering groceries and pre-packaged meals directly to vulnerable families. We also work to eliminate barriers to learning by providing students with clothing, hygiene products, and other supplies that help them focus on their studies. We donate to nonprofits supporting school districts in Washington state’s Puget Sound region, Northern Virginia, and Nashville, Tennessee. As of 2021, Amazon has provided more than $8 million and 50,000 instances of support to students and their families since 2018.
