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!
