In acknowledgment of the nationwide shortage of personal protection equipment (PPE) Lance Camper has donated its available supply of PPE to the Antelope Valley Regional Hospital, serving East Los Angleles County and the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster.
“Our initial focus was to protect the health and wellbeing of Lance’s 500-plus associates and families,” said Matt Buckman, VP and general manager at Lance. “With the successful implementation of an emergency action plan, the focus turned towards our suppliers, customers and local community. The widely publicized shortage of PPE was Lance’s opportunity to support the courageous first responders and medical professionals within our Antelope Valley Community. As a safety conscious manufacturer, we had many of the needed PPE items on hand, and the Lance Leadership Team was eager to donate these critically needed resources.”
The Antelope Valley Regional Hospital was contacted and a plan to transfer the critically needed supplies were coordinated and completed.
“We are so grateful to Lance Camper for their generous donation of PPE to be used by our staff in this critical time as we continue to ramp up the battle against COVID-19 in the Antelope Valley,” stated staff services in administration for Antelope Valley Hospital.
