The Fresno Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Fresno County EDC and City of Fresno to distribute one million free masks and 50,000 individual hand sanitizers (PPE) for Fresno businesses as part of the Chamber’s ongoing efforts to assist in the city’s safe reopening.
These items can be picked up at the Fresno Chamber (2331 Fresno Street, Fresno CA 93721) between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“The Chamber is excited to partner with the City of Fresno and the Fresno County EDC to get this PPE into the hands of those small businesses who need it the most,” said Nathan Ahle, President/CEO of the Fresno Chamber of Commerce. “Small businesses have been greatly impacted by the pandemic and we all have to do our part to make sure they can stay open safely. That means protecting business owners, their employees, and their customers. We hope that this free PPE distribution will help small businesses in our community get this essential equipment and keep their doors open.”
Plenty of masks and sanitizers are available, but to ensure availability to all those in need, the Chamber team is requesting no more than a 30-45 day supply be taken by each business. The masks and sanitizer are equipment purchased by the California Office of Emergency Services. No Chamber, EDC or local CARES Act dollars were used in the acquisition of this equipment.
