A small shipment of PPE (personal protective equipment) kits that include 100 disposable face coverings, 10 KN95 masks and a 23oz bottle of hand sanitizer have been allocated to Seneca County.
These shoebox-sized kits are provided by JobsOhio, which is the private economic development marketing and sales arm of the State of Ohio.
The kits were distributed to counties on a population bases and are part of the State’s “Ohio Safe. Ohio Working” initiative which was launched to support Ohio business throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
TSEP is tasked with distributing them to local businesses. Development Managers Audrey Flood and Nick Dutro, along with Downtown Main Street Manager Amy Reinhart are working to disseminate the kits to businesses.
TSEP is working with rural elected officials to offer kits to businesses in the townships and villages as well as businesses in the Downtown and throughout the City.
“We are grateful you chose to pursue ‘your American Dream’ with your business in Ohio and it is our privilege to provide support,” said JP Nauseef, President of JobsOhio, in a letter. “We hope these items serve as one less thing to worry about as you operate under the state’s Responsible RestartOhio safety guidelines.”
These kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are a small business owner who would like one, please reach out to TSEP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-447-3831.
