The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) and distributors across the country announced a partnership supporting mass vaccination sites at multiple NFL stadiums. Companies will donate personal protective equipment and other items, including gloves, sanitizer, pumps, masks, shields and wipes.

The first mass vaccination sites to receive donations were the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Heinz Field. NAW is currently sourcing items for additional teams including the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, and Seattle Seahawks.

“As our country moves to a new phase in our pandemic recovery, it is no surprise that wholesaler-distributors are delivering by donating needed supplies to mass vaccination sites across America,” said NAW President and CEO Eric Hoplin. “NAW and wholesaler-distributors across the country are proud to help NFL teams and vaccination sites because we know how important it is to safely get more shots in arms as we seek to put the COVID-19 pandemic in the past.”

Donated items already in use include more than 300,000 medical gloves, thousands of gallons of sanitizer and sanitizer pumps, thousands of face masks and shields, and thousands of disinfectant wipes.

Participating companies, as of March 25, including Benco Dental, Bunzl USA, Concordance Healthcare Solutions, Grainger, HD Supply, Henry Schein, Hillyard Inc., Imperial Beverage, Kimball Midwest, MSC Industrial Supply Co. and Patterson Companies Inc.
