In light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19 many child care programs have been forced to close their doors. Those who have remained open are struggling to access essential supplies. Child Care Resource Network has been working diligently to source and procure essential supplies such as bleach, gloves, masks, and hand soap so that child care providers can continue to care for the children of essential front-line workers.
CCRN is expected to begin taking delivery of essential health and safety supplies this week and will be distributing them to child care programs who remain open.
“We recognize that this is a challenging time for child care providers and they lack access to many essential health and safety supplies. We are very excited to be able to lend these providers a helping hand to keep them and the children in their care safe.” – Kimberly Suminski, CEO
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity in the City of Good Neighbors. Since we announced that we were going to be giving child care providers the supplies they need to keep caring for the children of essential workers several local businesses have stepped up and offered donations of gloves, hand soap, thermometers, and alcohol wipes. It’s been amazing how the community has come together.” – Jodi Schwegler, Vice President of Operations.
Child care providers who remain open and need supplies can visit the COVID-19 Child Care Provider Resource Center at wnychildren.org and indicate what supplies they need. Businesses who are interested in donating supplies to help child care providers can contact Kaley Donaldson at 716-877-6666 ext. 3071.
