By Staff Reports, posted Dec 14, 2020
The Wilmington Chamber of Commerce has partnered with PCCS Medical to bring more than protective face masks to small businesses and childcare facilities in the area, according to a news release.

Port City Contracting Services (PCCS) Medical, a wholesale distributor of medical/surgical supplies, medical equipment and pharmaceuticals is teaming up with the chamber to help keep area businesses open and operating safely during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The business is providing a "comprehensive donation," which will include more than 25,000 protective face masks for small businesses and 6,000 small face masks for any local childcare facility in need, stated the release.

“By providing this donation, PCCS Medical is helping to keep businesses open and keeping people safe at the same time,” Natalie English, president and CEO of the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, said in the release.

The firm will also donate up to 2,500 10-packs of face masks for any small business to share with its customers "to encourage the community to shop locally during the holiday season," officials said in the release.

The partnership is identifying businesses most in need, state the release. 

“PCCS is a service-disabled veteran owned small business, so we understand the struggles of operating a business, particularly in these challenging times. Wilmington gave me a home, and I want to give back. Please wear a face mask to help slow the spread,” said Trey Sharpe, CEO of PCCS Medical, in the release.

Small businesses, childcare facilities, or members of the general public with a need for PPE donations can pick up face masks at the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, 1 Estell Lee Place in Wilmington, from 9 a.m.-noon Tuesday-Friday.
