Shaw Industries partnered with the Northwest Georgia Regional Education Service Agency (NWGA RESA), the Georgia Department of Education, GEMA, and the Governor’s office to deliver personal protective equipment (PPE) and other safety supplies recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) for students’ safe return to the classroom this month.

Shaw Transport sent four tractor trailer trucks to Macon, Georgia, in late July to pick up approximately 150,000 pounds of PPE and safety supplies for the 17 school districts served by NWGA RESA. The equipment will be used to help protect 135,000 students, teachers and school system staff.

"We are so proud of our Northwest Georgia team for helping plan the logistics and successfully responding with our people and resources to help with this important initiative,” said Deanna Mathis, Shaw’s director of community outreach and corporate giving. "It’s ingrained in our corporate culture and part of our vision to create a better future for our communities in which we live and work.”
