Our PPE-Up in Tinseltown at the El Capitan/Jimmy Kimmel lot was a massive success! More than 700 businesses showed up to pick up their critical PPE supplies. We couldn't believe the huge turnout the day after Christmas with lines stretching beyond Hollywood and Highland.
Thanks to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce
We can't thank Rana Ghadban and her team at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce enough for volunteering for the day to greet and load PPE supplies to local Hollywood businesses and surrounding LA communities. We couldn't have done this without their relentless passion to help small businesses, especially during the debilitating pandemic.
“[PPE Unite] is a great organization that has helped us secure PPE supplies for local businesses,” Ghadban said. “We’ve partnered with them and hosted an event and distributed PPE supplies for over 800 businesses in Hollywood. We’re looking to host potentially another event with them in February, but their website is a great resource for businesses to sign up for an event that’s happening and help businesses with the free PPE. It includes hand sanitizer, face shields and masks.”
Correspondents and photojournalists from all major news channels like CBS, NBC, KTLA, KCAL, LA Times turned out to cover this highly impactful event.
