In response to Covid-19 and the challenging affects it has had on our business community, we thought it was extremely important that we support our member businesses through the transition as they begin to re-open. From this, came the concept of Operation PPE. Using our industry connections, we were able to bulk buy PPE and are in the process of assembling a one-time kit to give to our member businesses.
Kits will include:
a bottle of hand sanitizer
a box of nitrate gloves
some face masks
a resource guide
Working from a very grassroots level, we decided to utilize our Manager's backyard to host the delivery and the space to assemble the kits. One of the biggest challenges of the kits was being able to find plastic bottles to put the hand sanitizer in. After calling countless suppliers in Ontario and Quebec, we decided to resort to using ketchup bottles.
The first round of drop-offs happen Wednesday, May 20th!

Land Acknowledgement The City of Toronto acknowledges that what we now call Toronto is on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. The City also acknowledges that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
African Ancestral Acknowledgement The City of Toronto acknowledges all Treaty peoples – including those who came here as settlers – as migrants either in this generation or in generations past - and those of us who came here involuntarily, particularly those brought to these lands as a result of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Slavery. We pay tribute to those ancestors of African origin and descent
