Cut Red Tape 4 

22 million items of PPE distributed

March 2020 – April 2023 and climbing!

Ample Financial and Cut Red Tape 4 Heroes’s founder Rhonda Roland Shearer’s high-profile, not-for-profit effort started at the beginning of the pandemic.

“I ran the main charity supply operation at ground zero for uniform services including

From March 2020 until today my group has distributed 22 million items of PPE to FDNY,
Public Housing residents, Homeless services and hospital workers

The goal was to put PPE directly in the hands of healthcare workers who were going without PPE on the job or going to and from work in New York, New Jersey and Florida. As of July 2022, more than 3 million healthcare workers and people in need received more than 22 million items of PPE from – all documented in photos and videos found on Cut Red Tape 4 Heroes’ social media postings and in media reporting.

Shearer continues to obtain invaluable information from the front lines about ongoing PPE shortages and problems facing healthcare workers and hospital administrators, including how workers had to spend their own money to buy PPE for home use and were given potentially dangerous, expired products.

As a public benefit corporation, Financial’s continued support of Cut Red Tape 4 Heroes’ mission to supply healthcare workers with PPE for home and personal use is rewarded by giving relief to our heroes but also allowing healthcare organizations to guide Ample Financial on how to continue meeting their needs.
