Newark’s Gambert Shirts Making Masks for COVID-19 Protection

It’s amazing to see another Newark based company doing their part to help the front line workers protect us.

Joe Gambert, the family patriarch, became Newark’s custom shirt guy during the Great Depression with a $1,000 loan from his mother that he was sworn to pay back. Come WWII, Gambert would make shirts in exchange for rations and share 500-gallon barrels of sugar, flour and milk with the neighborhood.
