City thanks residents and organizations for significant PPE donations to protect frontline workers during Covid-19

BRANTFORD, ON – The City of Brantford would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks and to several local businesses, organizations and residents who have provided generous donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) to help protect frontline healthcare workers and essential service providers in our community.

Last month the City launched a campaign on social media and through digital and print ads in the Expositor requesting donations of ppe supplies. The response has been overwhelming with residents and businesses stepping up to support our frontline workers. “We are profoundly thankful to our community for coming together in this time of need to help protect our frontline workers during the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Kevin Davis. “I have always known this community to be generous of heart and this is further evidence of what we can achieve when we work together towards a common goal and purpose.”

The City is grateful to the following businesses that have provided ppe donations, including the City’s surplus of inventoried supplies:

  • Anonymous Community Donors

  • Apotex Pharmachem
  • Brant Family and Children’s Services
  • Brantford Power

  • Group Donation by Whatcha Wanna Wear, Northern Painters and Comfort Plus Climate Care
