To the Community,
I’m pleased to provide this final financial reconciliation of the Northumberland Producers Alliance face shield campaign which was administered by our organization (Northumberland CFDC) on behalf of all.
On Friday, MPP David Piccini and Northumberland CFDC Executive Director Wendy Curtis welcomed Ontario’s Minister of Finance, the Hon. Rod Phillips, to Venture13, where Northumberland.io Production Lead Colin Slade demoed our face shields and production process for the Minister.
Now that our emergency PPE production campaign has come to an end, having produced 7,105 face shields distributed to almost 200 organizations across Northumberland, commercial supply is becoming more widely available in the marketplace. We wanted to highlight a local manufacturer, Protoplast Inc., who are selling face shields produced at their facility in Cobourg. For more information, please contact Erin Botrie at 905-372-6451 ext. 110.
