FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

November 9, 2020-- Miami, FL – Kyia Mcfadden of DLM Imports, LLC in Delray Beach responded in a big way to the ongoing need for masks at Camillus House. He reached out to Patrick Lowenthal, CEO of WEP Sourcing, a Miami-based promotional product and sourcing company for the best place to donate 36,000 KN95’s for front line workers, 16,000 non-surgical masks and other protective items.  The answer for Patrick Lowenthal was easy.  He told Kyia to “donate the masks and other protective items to Camillus House, the largest provider of humanitarian assistance to families and individual who are homeless in South Florida. He added, “because of COVID-19, the programs and support services are perhaps as vital and important now as they have ever been before.”  Kyia Mcfadden agreed.

According to Camillus House CEO Hilda Fernandez, “These masks and supplies are a godsend not only for our 1,700 homeless women, men and children we house each day and the hundreds more we serve through outreach programs, but also for the amazing Camillus staff that works diligently each day to keep those we serve healthy.” She added,  “Acts of kindness  like this outstanding donation, enables us to maintain a clean and safe environment, and the means to reduce the spread of infection---while providing for the housing and service needs of homeless individuals.”

As Florida enters phase three in its reopening efforts, the need to wear protective masks is still strong, especially for vulnerable populations.  “We are fortunate to be a provider of Covid-19 related protective items.  To be in a position to help an organization that goes above and beyond to support and protect those who find themselves in overwhelming challenging and unfortunate situations is something that is very important to me,” said Kyia Mcfadden.  

In addition to the 52,000 masks, the donation included 1,600 bouffant caps, 368 face shields, 120 gallons of hand sanitizer and 25,000 zip lock bags. The collaboration of DLM Imports and WEP Sourcing is a reminder of the power of being interconnected to help others today, and for years to come.
