A year after the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) is still greater than ever especially for front-line community support workers and non-profit organizations. On Tuesday, March 16, 2021, the United Way Southern Interior BC team hosted a Pushor Mitchell Day of Caring® for local charities in need. Packages of PPE were provided to 50 charities in Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon that included 1000 protective masks, gloves, disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer.

The PPE Day of Caring is made possible thanks to local community and corporate partners like Secure-Rite Mobile Storage who once again have helped United Way with donated storage services as well as a safe and suitable location for the sorting of supplies and will host the Kelowna “drive-thru” pick-ups. In addition, United Way SIBC received 50,000 masks as part of the “One Million Masks Partnership”, a United Way collaboration with Deloitte, TransLink, OEC, Vancouver International Airport (YVR), BC Ferries, BCAA, SCI and BC Transit that recently distributed one million non-medical masks to those who need them across the province.
