Suppliers Stepping Up
We wanted to highlight some of the amazing things that our suppliers and partners are doing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To Suit Your Fancy
To Suit Your Fancy is an event design service. Jackie Phillips stepped up and started making hair buffs and bands for nurses and front line workers. They are wearing them to cover their hair while they work. The headbands hold the elastic on the masks so that they do not have to use their ears.
Simon Builds Things is producing S shapes out of plywood. Healthcare workers can loop the mask elastic around the plywood S. Ears can get irritated wearing a mask all the time, and this helps with that issue!
Top Shelf Distillers
Top Shelf Distillers is a Spirits producer located and Perth, Ontario. They have put alcohol production on hold to start producing hand sanitizer, and are currently producing 20,000 units a week!
Gordon Food Service
Gordon Food Service Canada has donated more than 1.5 million meals to local hunger-relief organizations.
On March 30, Sysco announced the launch of Foodies Unite, which is an initiative supporting the food industry. They have partnered with Food Banks of Canada, Second Harvest Food Rescue, and Breakfast Clubs of Canada to make food available to communities in need. Since March 30th, Sysco Canada has donated 2,095,520 meals!
