PolymerFilms understands the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic left on all cities, towns, and villages, both big and small. With the help of partnerships like NAW-NLC, companies like PolymerFilms are able to help the country back on its feet and move past such a catastrophe.

These cities will use the donations and supplies to support relief efforts in getting back on their feet. Pop-up health clinics will provide vaccinations for residents, PPE will be accessible in classrooms, and communal spaces, such as senior centers, can reopen due to the increased ability of protecting vulnerable populations.
