100%® Gives Back to Those on The Front Lines
March 31, 2020
Sport performance eyewear company donates personal protection equipment (PPE) and a portion of all online sales proceeds to CDC Foundation and to those fighting COVID-19.
SAN DIEGO, California – March 31, 2020 – 100%®, the San Diego-based sports performance company, has announced today that they sent a shipment of performance protective eyewear to the Los Angeles Fire Department Emergency Medical Services (EMS) division. The LAFD EMS has over 1,000 firefighters and paramedics serving the front line, and they’re one of the groups taking the brunt of the current COVID-19 crisis. With the tremendous shortage of PPE equipment, many EMS workers have been forced to go out and purchase their own protective eyewear. 100% is also preparing PPE for front-line personnel in New York City, Denver, San Diego, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Phoenix and Louisville.
In addition to the PPE donation, 100% launched a fundraising page for the CDC Foundation’s Combat Coronavirus Fundraiser. Please see 100Percent.com for more information on their mission to give back.
“It started with a few of our employees getting calls from friends and family members requesting protective eyewear,” said 100% CEO Ludo Boinnard, “What these brave men and women are doing to protect all of us is truly heroic, and we’re honored to be able to contribute to keeping them safe.”
