Blackstone contributes to NY relief efforts
HH Global’s strategic investor, Blackstone, announced a $15 million donation to help New York State; $10 million to New York State COVID-19 First Responders Fund and $5 million in grants to New York City relief efforts.
Blackstone is contributing $10 million to the New York State COVID-19 First Responders Fund, which will deploy emergency aid and resources where they are needed most. The fund will also support food, transportation and housing assistance for healthcare workers on the frontlines of the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak.
Additionally, the firm is donating $5 million to organizations providing food security and resources for New Yorkers in need. City Harvest, World Central Kitchen, Great Performances and Slice Out Hunger are all working to provide meals for healthcare workers, first responders and other vulnerable populations. Contributions to our nonprofit partners such as Coalition for the Homeless, Union Settlement and Covenant House New York, among others, have helped provide critical support to at-risk communities affected by COVID-19.
