You helped ABC 
make and deliver
12,976 PPE in Georgia!!!

Decatur Makers is sending virtual (and socially distant) hugs, high-fives, and extra loud "woot woots" to so many extraordinary people today! In this stressful time, the number of people who stepped up and played a part in response to the Covid19 pandemic, including our Atlanta Beats Covid (ABC) team, is inspiring. 

First, to those who cannot be thanked enough, our healthcare professionals and frontline workers who put their lives on the line to help and support others and keep our communities alive and well. We thank you!

Next, a round of applause for our incredibly dedicated ABC volunteers, who have 3D printed and molded parts, joined us for PPE assembly, drove around the state making deliveries, sewn masks and gowns, shared social media posts, made donations, shared supportive, kind words, and more. We thank you!

And last, but definitely not least, big hugs to our ABC sponsors for their financial support and over $60,000 in in-kind donations allowing us to play this part. We thank you!

ABC has also raised over $42,000 in donations from you, our larger community, so big thanks to you!!!

We're in this together. Stay healthy!
