Kansas City, MO - Do you need a mask?  How about your employees or your co-workers?

A shop focused on promoting and selling goods 'made in Kansas City' has built a website that provides a vetted list of local KC Metro businesses making and selling face masks, hand sanitizer and face shields.

The new website - KCPPE.com - is geared toward employers needing supplies for reopening during the coronavirus pandemic.

"If you’re a business getting ready to reopen or bring employees back to the office for the first time after 40-50 days, you have access to find materials to keep your team safe," said Keith Bradley with Made in KC.  

Individuals can also shop for safety items on KCPPE.com, but employers, with businesses both large and small, can sort through options to buy multiple items in bulk.
 


 

Bradley says the Kansas City, Missouri mayor's office asked them to get involved since the shop is connected to many KC local and regional makers who have switched gears recently to begin making these safety items. 

 

"One thing led to another, we realized the need really is there" to put all of these resources in one place, says Bradley.

"If we want to be effective in trying to prevent the spread in KC and make our city safe to reopen, then having all of this is critical."
