SARATOGA SPRINGS — A leader in the supply and servicing of uniform and work-wear programs gives back to small business community in support of economy reopening.

The UniFirst Corporation is partnering with the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce to donate 10,000 protective facemasks to local businesses in need, as part of a company-wide initiative to support the small business community. 

UniFirst General Manager Keith Plummer partnered with Chamber of Commerce President Todd Shimkus and Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Communications Richard Snyder.

As state shutdowns are lifted and the economy begins to reopen, many small business owners, the everyday heroes on the front lines of the recovery, are struggling to source and provide their staff with the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) required to meet government guidelines.

The donation is part of a company-wide initiative to support business revitalization in UniFirst markets around the country, prioritizing regions where resources are not as readily available.
