New Orleans, LA, April 04, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- The Greater New Orleans metropolitan area is a hotbed for the COVID-19 outbreak and one of the nation’s hardest hit cities. Both locally and nationally, a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) has left businesses and their essential employees without essential gear. With friends and family members among those affected, MediaBlink and Pelican Events united to serve as an anchor for communities in need, while continuing safety procedures for their employees.
Within 12 hours, the two companies transformed and retooled their standard manufacturing services, workforce and equipment to produce much-needed face shields.
“The first 225 went to two local hospitals in need,” says Benny Burst, co-founder of MediaBlink. “The next 100 go to state troopers.”
Renee Sullivan, who is MediaBlink’s vice president of strategic partnerships based in Detroit, added, “We are also shipping four boxes to Michigan state.”
The face shields are available for donation to first responders, area hospitals, healthcare facilities, nursing homes, and other front-line aid organizations. They are also for sale in wholesale lots of 100 or more to businesses in need. Please contact us if you are in need of face shields.
