that with the assistance of NBA legend and former Milwaukee Bucks player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, WHCA/WiCAL is working with
Magid Glove & Safety Manufacturing Company
, on a PPE order of PPE including gowns and N-95 masks.
The goal of this partnership is to reduce the cost of PPE by helping facilitate a bulk purchasing order on to key PPE supplies including gowns, 3-ply and N-95 masks. All of the state's skilled nursing and assisted living facilities are asked to fill out this survey if they are interested in participating in this bulk purchasing order.
“Getting PPE to our heroes working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic is a top priority,” said John Vander Meer, President & CEO of WHCA/WiCAL. “On behalf of Wisconsin’s long-term care providers, I would like to thank Kareem for his support of Wisconsin’s long-term heroes on the frontlines, and to the Magid team for helping provide critically needed PPE to caregivers who are serving Wisconsin’s frail older adults and citizens with an intellectual or development disabilities.”
