Economic Development to distribute PPE

Findlay Hancock County Economic Development’s top priority is retention and expansion of existing business. The Corona Virus pandemic has created the need to focus on the retention of business over the past several months. In order to make sure business can operate safely Jobs Ohio has purchased Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be distributed. Kits will be distributed Friday morning July 24 from 8 am to 12 pm at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts parking lot. Each business will be limited to one tool kit.

“Over the past several months we have worked with many businesses to assist during the pandemic. Our office has worked on making sure businesses understood the Stay at Home Order, apply for Payroll Protection Program, operate in a digital economy and many other ways. The tool kits create a safer business environment and are an important reminder to business that they need to continue to take the appropriate precautions”, said Tim Mayle, Director of Economic Development.

PPE is not only being distributed in Hancock County but across the State of Ohio. In collaboration with Jobs Ohio Network Partners, Jobs Ohio is distributing 15,000 safety tool kits across the state throughout this week. Each toolkit, valued at $100, provides PPE that at times have been in short supply for small businesses during the pandemic. Jobs Ohio has partnered with its six regional economic development organizations to coordinate the distribution.

“Small business has been hit very hard during this pandemic. Any resources that can assist us in staying open are welcome”, said Andrew Yates, small business owner and Economic Development board member. “I hope to see many small businesses stopping by the performing arts center Friday to pick up the tool kit.”

Kits will be passed out on a first come first served basis and will be available until they are all distributed. Economic Development will be distributing 175 kits. Any business is eligible including not for profits.
