Posted at 4:37 AM, May 25, 2020

As businesses start getting back to work, the Better Business Bureau has launched an app to help local businesses find PPE.

Companies that sell masks, cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer are being continuously added to the free app.

"As businesses reopen and welcome staff and customers it is important they have the supplies necessary to ensure their equipment and environment are clean and safe,” says Phil Catlett, President of the Better Business Bureau Serving Western Michigan. “This app can help organizations connect with local businesses. This not only helps companies reopen in a safe way, but it helps the local economy.”

The BBB says the app also provides resources for businesses to help them navigate through the pandemic.

"This is a huge benefit to the community,” said Isaac Oswalt, owner of 21 Handshake. “To have a central source to stay up to date on what COVID limitations mean to them, the industries they work In or support, and simple overall awareness.”
