Bath & Body Works names Besa Corporate Partner of the Year 2022.

Bath & Body Works is honored to be named Besa's Corporate Partner of the Year for 2022. Besa, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) based in Columbus, Ohio, makes giving back simple and transformative in order to power a wave of civic engagement that lifts us all.

Bath & Body Works has been dedicated to improving the communities where they do business for more than 30 years, and they are focused on making a positive difference in the lives of their associates, customers, and community. Bath & Body Works has collaborated with Besa to engage over 1,800 associates in nearly 10,000 volunteer hours and $250,000 in community impact since 2018. And, in the last year, Bath & Body Works associate volunteer projects increased by 25%, volunteer hours increased by 47%, and the impact of the company's volunteer dollars increased by 59%.

“Bath & Body Works is proud to work with Besa, and we’re honored to be recognized as their 2022 Corporate Partner of the Year,” said Rhoe Fields, Associate Vice President of Community Relations for Bath & Body Works.

“For us, our purpose goes beyond selling products. This award highlights our commitment and passion to giving back to our community.”

"Bath & Body Works exhibits a culture of giving that is world-class — and world-changing," said Besa CEO Matthew Goldstein.

"They consistently explore needs and find creative ways to fill them, whether it's collecting school supplies for children or donating personal hygiene items for women escaping abuse. And when unexpected emergencies arise, they meet the moment -- whether it's with financial support, products or people power. Their efforts to uplift the community set the bar for companies not just in Columbus but nationwide."

Bath & Body Works is proud to support nonprofit organizations that help their communities by providing essential resources. Bath & Body Works collaborates with organizations dedicated to improving the lives of people in underserved and underrepresented communities through grants and volunteer programs.
