PPE Starter Kits Available For Small Businesses In Washtenaw County

Jul 9, 2020

The Ann Arbor Ypsilanti Regional Chamber is offering free Personal Protective Equipment starter kits to local small businesses.  

With the help of the DTE Foundation, the goal is to provide businesses with masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer as they reopen their doors during COVID-19.  Andy LaBarre is the executive vice president of the chamber and says the kits are available to businesses that have between two and 50 employees.

Andy LaBarre: When you are running your business safely, or when you are at your job doing it safely, that’s going to have a health benefit for you, for your customers, for the people you interact with outside of work.

You don’t have to be a member of the chamber to get a free kit.  To request one, contact the chamber.
