West Palm Beach, Florida – Clinics Can Help (CCH) is grateful for the generosity of Advance Auto Parts in West Palm Beach, a store that has repeatedly demonstrated a great willingness to help others during times of disaster in Palm Beach County. Since the onset of COVID-19, the need for equipment such as masks like these is severe.
On Thursday, July 9, Pablo Marrero, the store’s Vice President of operations, and Grant LaBarbera, Vice President and General Manager of Florida and Puerto Rico, arrived with other Advance representatives wearing smiles and carrying boxes filled with 10,000 KN95 respirator masks. The boxes were unloaded to the delight of CCH staff.
“We’re so grateful to Pablo, Grant and the entire staff of the West Palm Beach Advance Auto Parts for their kindness and concern for the safety for not only our CCH families, but our community as a whole, during this unprecedented time,” said Clinics Can Help’s CEO and founder, Owen O’Neill, who will be sure the masks get in the hands of those who need them most.
O’Neill says that Palm Beach County residents may not realize the Advance Auto Parts location in West Palm Beach also houses other Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) equipment such as tarps and generators. He encourages everyone to stop in and show their support for this local business so dedicated to helping others.
