Milford, NH – Alene Candles is normally focused on making high quality candles for customers around the world, but when COVID-19 struck the US, their focus shifted to targeting the most immediate needs for PPE in the community. They had the people, space and capabilities ready to work, so they decided to produce face shields. For their first production run of 10,000, they bought the materials they could find like elastic and foam, then received a generous donation of plastic materials from a producer in Biddeford, ME in exchange for a donation of 3,000 face shields to go back to Maine’s community of first responders and hospitals. They agreed, and decided to donate all of the face shields they assembled.
