PPE drive seeking donations for local educators

Revive Church in Poultney is hosting a Safety First PPE Drive to support local educators through September 7th. The new school year is bringing extraordinary need for PPE (personal protection equipment) to comply with COVID 19 safety regulations. “Complicated regulations and a lack of funding will put the burden of supplying PPE on teachers and staff whom already make personal investments for school supplies. We are trying to support the educators who will be challenged to keep students and staff healthy and safe through the year. Social distancing and hygiene protocols will be very difficult to enforce, especially with the younger children. The Revive Church community is asking for support from the local community that can be as easy as sitting at your computer” said Pastor Cassie Kerber.

There are many ways to donate.100% of monetary donations to Revive’s Benevolence Fund within the month of August will be used to purchase PPE for the Safety First Drive. All donations are tax deductible. wearerevive.church/Giving
