About the PPE Marketplace
BRAC and Lyons Specialty Company, LLC partnered to create the PPE Marketplace, a purchasing collaborative to source and supply Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at competitive rates to the Capital Region business community, in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Marketplace reduced the barrier to critical PPE needed by the local business community to reopen when supply chains were compromised.
The PPE Marketplace facilitated nearly 800 orders from businesses across the nine-parish Capital Region and beyond. More than 3,000 boxes of gloves, 1,800 packs of alcohol wipes, 1,100 boxes of disposable masks, and 600 cases of hand sanitizer were purchased.
The PPE Marketplace initiative was part of BRAC’s COVID-19 recovery priorities. Read more about BRAC’s work to support businesses through the pandemic and recovery period here.
