Through this campaign, Southern Tide is working to raise much-needed assistance for the hardworking healthcare professionals on the frontlines in South Carolina and beyond through the “Hats Off to Our Healthcare Heroes” campaign, which launched this past Sunday, April 5th, 2020. Southern Tide will provide aid through sales of special limited-edition performance hats and t-shirts– emblazoned with an original design meant to show gratitude and recognition for our medical communities. The special edition unisex performance hats and t-shirts will be available on SouthernTide.com where Southern Tide will donate $15 per hat, $23 per short sleeve t-shirt and $28 per long sleeve t-shirt, representing 100% of Southern Tide’s profits, to SCHA for every unit sold through April 30th.

“Southern Tide is thrilled to partner with our friends at the South Carolina Hospital Association for this special initiative during these uncertain times we are facing,” said Christopher Heyn, Southern Tide CEO. He goes on to say, “We couldn’t think of a more deserving group of heroes than members of our medical community who are working tirelessly around the clock. In the upcoming weeks, we look to build upon this campaign and kick-off relationships with additional states. We want our frontline heroes to know that we are with them every step of the way and are incredibly grateful for all that they do.”
Support for like-minded organizations with shared missions and values has always been a part of the Southern Tide DNA. The Greenville, SC-based brand is now looking forward to working with a partner in their own backyard, as well as sharing this initiative with additional healthcare organizations across the country in the upcoming weeks.
