PPE available for child care providers

Friday, April 16, 2021 by Chad Swiatecki

Child care providers in the Austin area can receive free cleaning supplies and personal protection equipment to prevent Covid-19 transmission at two curbside pickup days at First Workers Day Labor Center on North I-35. The distribution was organized by Workforce Solutions Capital Area and Bank of America, which has provided face masks for the effort. Child care providers who contract with Workforce Solutions to serve families receiving child care subsidies can receive bath tissues, hand soap and sanitizer, gloves, disinfectant wipes and more. Supplies are available from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on April 23 and 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on April 24, with reservations available online, which must be made by April 16.
