The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Torrance partnered PPE Unite this past Saturday to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to South Bay small businesses.
“Our mission at PPE Unite is to help flatten the curve by reducing occupational exposure risk. To say that small businesses have been dramatically impacted by the impending Covid-19 health crisis would be an understatement. The disruptions within the workplace that are caused by a single positive case and staff exposure are truly a threat to business. Our goal is to offer a small gesture that can relieve some of those financial burdens as businesses reopen and get back on their feet,” stated Jay Tsao, co-founder PPE Unite.
The South Bay event turned out to be a huge success and the largest PPE-up event to date serving close to 900 businesses. “We usually go through about 5-6 pallets of face masks, hand sanitizer, and face shields, but at this event we distributed two whole truckloads (~24 pallets). It was quite a turnout and a great showing from the South Bay business community”, commented Tsao.
