Later shipments will be available to any business in our area that is eligible. Masks required and social distancing will be observed when you pick up your box.

The kits will include face masks, face shields, sanitizer, a thermometer, and other crucial COVID-19 mitigation and protection equipment along with #MaskUpMontco window clings and documents that provide COVID-19 information and guidance.

“PPE is vital for businesses, their employees, and their customers and visitors. Providing these supplies to small businesses saves them time and money they’d otherwise use to procure PPE and allows them to do what they do best and keep their businesses going,” said David Zellers Jr., Director of Commerce, Montgomery County. “We’re grateful and appreciative of the help from the Alliance of Montgomery County Chambers of Commerce to get these kits out into all of our communities.”

The PPE Support Kits are being distributed as a partnership between the County and the Alliance of Montgomery County Chambers of Commerce as part of our shared commitment to support businesses during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
