When COVID-19 hit the U.S., World Emblem converted its manufacturing capabilities to focus on personal protective equipment like masks, gowns, and hazmat suits. The company committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from these items to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Coronavirus Response Fund. The money from this fund goes toward needs related to the virus.
With the donation period ending on Labor Day, World Emblem contributed $23,590 to the CDC this month.
According to company president Randy Carr, “We were fortunate that we had the facilities and capabilities to convert our factories to make products that were in short supply. This allowed us to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 while also keeping our people employed. We are grateful to all who purchased from us and that we are able to make this contribution to the CDC. The fight is not over, and we will continue making whatever is needed until this threat has passed.”
