Our Partners Respond to COVID-19
Several Sagamore partners have stepped up to help members of their communities navigate the difficult challenges brought on by this pandemic. We encourage you to explore some ways our partners are doing their part in the fight against COVID-19.
Free and Safe Deliveries
Nick Turner is the founder and CEO of DeliverEnd, a Commonwealth start up that provides innovative tech to make deliveries and meetups for online purchases safer and more convenient.
When businesses in Indianapolis began to struggle in light of COVID-19, Nick and DeliverEnd stepped up and offered free delivery services for all local businesses. Additionally, Nick and team recently announced that DeliverEnd will be donating more than 1,000 N95 and 3PLY face masks to hospitals and nursing homes in the Indianapolis area.
ART TURNS MISSION
from ACME Creation Labs
Stephen Fucile, Executive Relations Manager at Commonwealth partner Prison Entrepreneurship Program (PEP), has launched a mission to manufacture PPE face shields for medical workers, first responders, and other essential employees in the Dallas area. ACME Creation Lab converted their operations as an art studio to respond to the need, relying on volunteers and donations to produce the face masks. Once the masks are made, they are then donated to community health and public service workers.
