Honoured to rise in the Legislature today to speak about the remarkable work being done by the Northumberland Producers Alliance. This remarkable ingenuity, collaborative spirit and volunteerism is what makes our community great. To everyone involved, thank you for rising to the occasion to support our front line workers!
Today marked the planned end of full-scale production at Venture13. Under Production Lead Colin Slade and his team of indefatigable volunteers, we achieved a high water mark in our daily output. We made it to the astounding level of producing an average of 280 units per day, representing a 263% increase in volume of production since April 10th, 2020.
Given the incredible support of the community, our GoFundMe campaign backers who helped us hit our $2,500 stretch goal, and our amazing volunteers, assemblers, drivers, sewers, 3D-printers, organizers and team leads, as of May 7, 2020, we are officially making face shields universally available to all businesses and community organizations in Northumberland.
