Daytona Beach, FL - Starting in a couple of weeks, local businesses in the Volusia County area will be able to pick up a personal protection equipment (PPE) kit, free of charge, all thanks to the Volusia County Chamber Alliance.
This was made possible after the Volusia County Council approved the $1 million expenditure last week, with funds coming from the county's $96.5 million federal stimulus package from the CARES act.
With that money, the county purchased about 7,000 PPE kits that are now headed off to be distributed by the Volusia County Chamber Alliance at six different locations over five days.
Those dates and locations are:
To claim a kit, businesses must provide a business card that shows they are from a Volusia business and sign that they received the product. Anyone picking up a kit may do so at any one of the sites. PPE kits will include masks, gloves, sanitizer, paper towels and cleaning product. Businesses may only claim up to two kits at the distribution sites.
