Wooter Apparel, Gamebreaker Create Masks During Coronavirus Pandemic
Two leading sports companies in their industries united back in early March to champion a cause that quickly impacted healthcare professionals, essential workers, and everyday citizens around the world with the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic. By launching CovCare, a medical supplies and logistics company, Wooter Apparel and GameBreaker pivoted their business model from customizing sports apparel and protective headgear to helping solve the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the United States.
CovCare streamlined the supply chain process by working closely with manufacturers in China and carries a wide variety of medical supplies from CE certified K9N5 masks, NIOSH certified N95 masks, to CE certified 3-ply disposable masks, face shields, gloves, gowns, and more.
The impact by CovCare to protect people from the spread of the Coronavirus has been felt from New York to Los Angeles.
By mid-April, CovCare had successfully imported 1.5 million masks to the U.S., followed by 1 million disposable 3-play masks and 500,000 medical gowns and face shields. After two months of effectively overcoming global supply chain obstacles, improving distribution abilities, and utilizing software and technological resources, CovCare had effectively pivoted from sports business to medical supplies and logistics to become one of the fastest-growing medical supplies and logistics companies. Along with outfitting frontline staff members fighting COVID-19 at Montefiore Medical Center, Mount Sinai, Staten Island University Hospital, the New York State Nurses Association, Houston Methodist, the U.S. Department of Defense, Steward Health Care, Sentara Healthcare, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, Highlands Hospital, and the Fort Lee Police Department (New Jersey) among other hospitals and organizations, CovCare has donated over $200,000 worth of PPE supplies to healthcare and essential workers across the United States. Most recently, CovCare donated 1,600 masks to Rideshare Drivers United, a non-profit organization supporting Uber and Lyft Drivers rights, as volunteers distributed hundreds of masks and gloves to needy drivers in San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego, and Los Angeles.
In an attempt to ease the strains and worries caused by the soaring unemployment rate in the United States due to COVID-19, CovCare has also implemented an affiliate program where people can earn 10% on every sale they refer to the company website.
