During the ongoing pandemic, organizations are doing their best to keep their staff and guests safe. Last week, Apex Advertising made a large donation of personal protective equipment to the Lancaster County nonprofit Aaron’s Acres. The PPE will be used for the Aaron's Acres' summer programs.
Apex is currently celebrating its 30th year in business and is looking to help out organizations in the community with its "30 for 30" initiative. Apex turned to United Way of Lancaster County for help in finding an organization that needed PPE.
“We are a connector with nonprofits, whether or not they receive funding from us," said Cindi Moses, executive vice president with United Way of Lancaster County.
"We are the middleman, and we receive, especially during the pandemic, a lot of requests from nonprofits for assistance; but we have also received a lot of requests from businesses who are willing and able to assist.”
Ron Weaver, Apex Advertising's president and CEO, said, “We wanted to be able to step up and help.”
“It’s a huge financial relief, but also ensures us the ability to provide safety to our staff and out participants," said Elaine Burnett, program director with Aaron’s Acres.
