[ARCHIVED] City to Distribute Millions of Pieces of FREE PPE for Eugene Nonprofit and Small Businesses

City of Eugene receiving pallets of PPE that will be distributed for free to small businesses.

The City of Eugene, in partnership with Business Oregon, is offering free Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supplies to local nonprofit and small businesses with 100 or fewer employees. Sanitation remains a key component to slowing the spread of COVID-19 and the City is grateful to be able to offer this opportunity to local businesses. 

 

We know many businesses have been hit hard by the effects of the virus and these supplies are a small way to help. Available supplies include large and medium gloves (14,000 boxes), disposable masks (nearly 4 million masks) and antiseptic wipes (32,000 boxes). As long as supplies last each eligible business may pick up a two-month supply. The application for Eugene small businesses will go live on January 12, 2021 at 8 a.m. The supplies will be dispersed on a first come, first served basis. 

 

Eligibility

Eligible businesses must meet all of the following requirements to receive supplies:   

  • Be in Eugene and headquartered in Oregon
  • Have 100 or fewer employees
  • Have an Oregon Business Registry number for completing the form

 

See our Free Supplies for Small Businesses web page for more information. The online appointment form will be posted on this page on  January 12 at 8 a.m. When a small business or nonprofit applies, it will be required to make an appointment to pick up the PPE. Once a business’s eligibility has been verified, the contact person will receive an email confirmation with the pickup date, time and location.
