The Greenwood SC Chamber of Commerce and the Greenwood Partnership Alliance are working together to distribute masks and thermometers to local industries to assist them during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s imperative that local businesses know that we are available to assist them through this crisis,” said David Dougherty, Interim President & CEO of the Greenwood SC Chamber.
“By joining forces with the Greenwood Chamber to distribute these items, it is our hope that local manufacturers can remain in operation to serve our community while keeping their employees as safe and healthy as possible,” said Art Bush, Interim CEO of the Greenwood Partnership Alliance.
Thanks to a very generous donation from Lowe’s of Greenwood, the Chamber has worked to distributed 5,000 masks over the last few weeks to local businesses. The Greenwood Partnership Alliance will provide non-contact infrared thermometers to local manufacturers to utilize in employee health checks. The thermometers were allocated by FEMA and SCEMD to local economic development organizations for distribution to industries.
Masks and thermometers will be distributed while supplies last. Since this effort launched businesses such as Mumford Industries, the Skinner Company, local restaurants, merchants, and other organizations have benefited from this initiative.
“We know that a healthy community leads to a faster recovery. We are thankful for the support that Lowes of Greenwood and the South Carolina Department of Commerce have extended to our community, and their commitment to helping small businesses and manufacturers remain safe and healthy in these uncertain times,” Dougherty said. “We continue to see our small businesses and manufacturers in Greenwood do big things, and we’re hopeful for what the future has to hold,” stated Bush.
