Team WV PPE Kits Distributed Across the State

Friday, January 22, 2021

Thank you to everyone who participated in our TEAM WV PPE Project! We were able to distribute 500+ PPE Kits to families who have individuals with a disability and at least one child in the home. We were also able to share educational materials about the importance of wearing a mask and social distancing. Those who have received a kit have participated in the social media campaign, #CEDMASKCHALLENGE as a way to promote the activity- don’t forget to check it out and share a picture!

There were several partners that enhanced our ability to complete the project. Sparkle Janitorials offered a discounted rate for the hand sanitizer; VOAD contributed donated masks, hand sanitizer, and gloves; and the DD Council contributed additional funds to ensure the reach was statewide. For distribution purposes, we partnered with the West Virginia Alliance of Family Resource Networks, Community Action Agencies, and several individual community agencies.

It is so important to us to continue to assist those who need our help, especially amidst a pandemic. Thanks again to everyone who assisted us in making this project a success!
