Bank of America donates PPE to Donate Delaware
Bank of America is partnering with Donate Delaware to provide personal protective equipment, specifically 250,000 masks, 50 cases of hand sanitizer, and 26,000 pairs of gloves. To date, Bank of America has provided Donate Delaware with total of 750,000 masks, 200 cases of hand sanitizer, and 78,000 gloves.
This donation is part of a nationwide effort by Bank of America to distribute millions of PPE masks to communities disproportionally impacted by the coronavirus, including communities of color, and is connected to its $1.25 billion, five-year commitment of support to help local communities address economic and racial inequality accelerated by a global pandemic. Bank of America has distributed more than 25 million masks in cities across the country since last summer.
“Donate Delaware plays a vital role in the community by distributing much needed PPE supplies to nonprofits and schools across Delaware so they can continue serving our neighbors,” said Chip Rossi, President, Bank of America Delaware. “We are grateful for the important work they do and are here to ensure they have the resources needed to continue supporting our community.”
Since March of 2020 Donate Delaware has been supporting communities throughout the State of Delaware by providing much needed PPE supplies. Due to the generosity of business and nonprofit partners who donated PPE supplies, Donate Delaware has distributed over $2 million worth of personal protective equipment to date.
Dave Tiberi, co-founder of Donate Delaware commented that as part of its outreach, Donate Delaware volunteers will work with nonprofit and community leaders to ensure that the PPE reaches the most vulnerable populations as well as frontline workers, senior homes, schools and health centers.
