Through a joint State/County initiative, a program currently known as PPE Unite will be distributing, free of charge, PPE items for small businesses (100 employees or less) throughout the County. The materials covered will be face masks (surgical), hand sanitizer, and face shields (30 day supply as of this initial phase). Allocation of items will be based on employee headcount, which will be self-certified.
For now, businesses can go to PPEUnite.org and fill out the application to move onto the “My PPE Booking” page. From there, they can schedule a time and date to pick up their allotted PPE items (face masks (surgical), face shields, and hand sanitizer).
PPE Unite organizers have distribution available in South Los Angeles at 19914 South Vía Barron, Rancho Dominguez, Compton.
Distribution is on a first come, first serve, so operations will continue until supplies are exhausted. Self-employed, independent contractors and independent franchisees are also encouraged to apply.
