Kimball Midwest, a national industrial supplier based in Columbus, Ohio, announced Thursday that it recently donated face shields and hand sanitizer to the city of Savannah, Georgia, as part of a partnership between the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) and the National League of Cities (NLC).

The partnership’s goal it to provide small and mid-sized cities with supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) to help boost local vaccination rates, reopen city buildings and community centers, and protect teachers and students returning to in-classroom teaching.

Savannah is home to one of Kimball Midwest’s four distribution centers.

“We were happy to provide these supplies to the City of Savannah as part of this partnership,” said Kimball Midwest President and CEO Pat McCurdy. “As states, counties and cities across the nation continue to recover from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re honored to do our part to help keep America working.

“The city of Savannah has been a great partner since we opened our Southeast Distribution Center there in 2014. We look forward to building upon this partnership as we emerge from the pandemic.”

NAW and NLC’s PPE Partnership is focused on supplying more than $1 million worth of face shields, masks, sanitizer and other needed supplies to eight cities: Albany, East Point, Savannah and Union City, Georgia; Hamden and New London, Connecticut; Framingham, Massachusetts; and Nashua, New Hampshire.
