The national shortage of PPE has us extremely concerned about the safety of our nation’s healthcare and essential workers as they fight COVID-19. Idly waiting for the storm to pass was not how we wanted to cope during this stressful and uncertain time. Atomic has been and always will be a group of do-ers. We are the first to jump into action and the last ones there to see it through to the finish. Even though our usual line of work is fabricating custom props for the experiential and out of home advertising industries, we have adapted our shop to manufacture and donate reusable full-face shields.
For the past eight weeks, we have been manufacturing and donating full-face shields to medical professionals and first responders all over the country. Thanks to all the generous donors, we have been able to make 6,200 shields. Everyone at Atomic has been involved in the design, fabrication, packaging, and delivery of the shields. It has been inspirational and encouraging to see the hearts of all in action.
We are firm believers that you don’t have to be a large corporation to make a difference. All acts of kindness matter and we need to show our doctors, nurses, EMTs, State Patrol Officers, and essential workers that they are not alone.
What’s Next for Atomic
Manufacturing shields has been a rewarding and encouraging experience. But like many of you, we have been longing for events to start back up and for people to venture out of their homes again. We miss creating incredible experiences for our clients and their brands.
We want you to know that we will be here to help make your next project incredible when the time is right. The Atomic Team is offering free brainstorming calls to help brands infuse safety into this new advertising landscape.
If you would like to support our mission, please visit our GoFundMe to make a donation. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to produce more shields and we are getting closer every day!
