Governor Raimondo has announced a collaboration with chambers of commerce and other associations to distribute 500,000 masks and much-needed disinfectant solution to our small businesses and non-profits that are open or reopening and still need help accessing them.
Small businesses and non-profits located in Southern RI with 50 or fewer employees that are open or are reopening — including retailers, grocery stores, manufacturers, restaurants and service-based businesses — are able to access a month’s supply of product through these organizations.
The methodology for distribution breaks down as follows:
8 surgical masks per employee (2 masks per week per person for 4 weeks)
Voucher for 1 gallon of disinfectant for businesses under 25 employees, two 1-gallon containers for businesses with 25-50 employees.
We are pleased to announce that the Southern RI Chamber of Commerce will be one of the distribution centers for these supplies. Our office is currently closed to the public. In order to control the number of people in our office/parking lot at one time, we will be scheduling appointments for businesses to pick up their supplies. Call 401-783-2801 to schedule your appointment. Please only come to our office if you have an appointment scheduled. If you are unable to keep your appointment or are running late, please call us asap.
