Hempstead, NY (October 7, 2020)—Hempstead Town Supervisor Don Clavin, Councilman Bruce Blakeman and Councilman Anthony D’Esposito, Cedarhurst Mayor Benjamin Weinstock and the Cedarhurst Business Improvement District, provided local Cedarhurst business owners with much needed personal protective equipment (PPE) kits as part of the Town’s PPE giveaway initiative. This effort stems from the Town’s larger PPE initiative which has made 6,000 PPE kits available to support small businesses throughout the town that have 20 or less employees with items needed to keep staff as well as their patrons safe. 

“I’d like to thank Senator Schumer for his part in securing the funding for the initiatives that have now helped tens of thousands of Hempstead residents,” stated Hempstead Town Supervisor Don Clavin. “The Town of Hempstead is strong and resilient and that is due to the men and women that make up America’s largest township. We will get through this pandemic together as we remain committed to providing the aid needed to reopen and restore services to our residents and businesses. The Town will continue to do what it can to support our residents, our businesses and our community.” 

These PPE kits are available free of charge but are only available while supplies last. Businesses in need of these high-in-demand supplies are encouraged to apply online as soon as possible. This initiative has been made possible through funding from the federal CARES Act, which provided a $133 million grant to the Town of Hempstead to distribute economic relief grants to alleviate some of the adverse effects that have arisen due to the pandemic.  

Qualifying businesses will be provided with a date, time and location for pickup.  Small businesses in both incorporated villages and unincorporated communities in the Town of Hempstead are all eligible to apply for the town’s PPE program. 

Each PPE kit comes fully equipped with the basic necessities needed to remain safe and follow appropriate COVID-19 protocols. The kits include:

·      One contactless infrared digital thermometer

·      Five face shields

·      Eight boxes of 50 three-ply masks

·      Two boxes of 100 pairs of powder-free and vinyl gloves

·      Two gallons of hand sanitizer with a spray pump

·      One canister of 1,500 sanitizing wipes

The application is also available in Spanish, https://www.hempsteadny.gov/ppe-giveaway-spanish. Information regarding eligibility to apply is provided on the website. Note, when applying for PPE kits you will be asked to enter your Employer Identification Number. You must register first as kits will be fulfilled in the order businesses register.
