Helping Neighbors: FISH OF SANCAP Distributing COVID PPE to Community
FISH OF SANCAP, in partnership with the City of Sanibel, CHR, Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club, and the Sanibel Community Association (SCA) will be distributing COVID Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits to all community members on Wednesday September 30th and Thursday October 1st from 11am to 5:00pm at the Sanibel Community House, Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL. Kits are available on a first come, first served basis until inventory is depleted.
The City of Sanibel received an allotment of disposable facemasks, reusable cloth facemasks, and a 16oz bottle of hand sanitizer from Lee County, is partnering with FISH, CHR, The Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva, and the Sanibel Community House to distribute to the community. “The health crisis we’re facing is unprecedented; we’re grateful to partner with the City on such an important venture,” said Maggi Feiner, President & CEO. “This is a true community partnership that will help continue to keep our community healthy and safe.”
The CDC recommends use of face coverings as a means to protect each other from spreading COVID-19 in addition to other measures including keeping your hands clean, social distancing, and other measures. The FISH PPE packets will include multiples of disposable facemasks, reusable cloth facemasks, and a 16oz bottle of hand sanitizer. Packets will be provided at no cost to individuals and households.
Next week, FISH and CHR volunteers will assemble packages of supplies at the Center 4 Life. Distribution at the Community House will consist of a no-contact ‘drive and drop’ car line where community members drive in, open their window or trunk and volunteers drop supplies into the vehicle. If anyone is interested in assisting on distribution day, including youth seeking community service volunteer hours, please contact Maria Espinoza at FISH, 239-472-4775.
