WHCA/WiCAL Promotes PPE Partnership with NBA Legend
NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Gives Assist to Wisconsin Long-Term Care Providers
WHCA/WiCAL is pleased to announce 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.”
"I am equally in awe of the great effort and sacrifices that you are making in Wisconsin to keep your communities safe," said Abdul-Jabbar in the below video to Wisconsin's long-term care providers. "Some people claim that a crisis brings out the best in people. But I think that it only brings out the best in the best people. Those that believe they are part of something greater. You are the heart of our humanity and you inspire us to be our best selves."
