“In March 2020, it became painfully apparent that our medical and front line essential workers were fighting a deadly disease without the PPE they needed,” said Caroline Dunn, the communications director of ABC. “The gratitude we received from healthcare workers, first responders and teachers kept us going through our darkest days. For many workers, we were the only reliable source of PPE.”
ABC delivered over 70,000 pieces of PPE to more than 235 local organizations with the help of 250 volunteers and 25 sponsors before closing its doors in November 2020. Since it started in November, Georgia Makes PPE has delivered around 10,000 isolation gowns.
