PPE Unite partnered with the City of Lancaster to conduct a PPE-Up drive-up pickup event at the Antelope Valley Visitor Center, home to the gorgeous Poppy Reserve, to distribute PPE to hundreds of local small businesses and organizations.
Thanks to the City of Lancaster
The City of Lancaster donated their Visitor Center and volunteers to help us operate a successful event to provide face masks, hand sanitizers, face shields to organizations in Lancaster, Palmdale, and across the Antelope Valley.
Thanks to the Small Business Development Center
Special thanks to Catherine Grooms, Director of the College of the Canyons SBDC, Elianne Rodriguez, Manager at the Bixel Exchange, and Pat Nye, Director of the LA SBDC Network, for coming out on a beautiful, yet windy day to help pass out supplies.
“Small businesses continue to be a critical element and driver of the local economy and national economy. When you experience a global pandemic with a negative impact on so many businesses, it helps others to realize how important small businesses are to everyone whether it’s your livelihood or not. I am proud to lead a team continuing to provide technical assistance to small business owners as they work on survival and sustainability through the impact of the global pandemic. I am thankful to participate with PPE Unite in the distribution of a 30-day supply of PPE to small businesses in the Antelope Valley and surrounding areas on 1/9," said Director Catherine Grooms.
