COVID-19 Supply List
Over the past few weeks, we here at CCAoNH have worked to put together a list of supplies that child care centers might be looking for to help them stay open or to reopen as an ECCP. Please see below for a link to a list of potential options for your COVID-19 supply needs. This list is provided as a courtesy and is not an endorsement by Southern New Hampshire Services, Child Care Aware of New Hampshire for any particular organization or program. The organizations we have found are making supplies for essential workers during this pandemic. Please reach out to the organization directly, and they will work with you to supply what they can for your needs.
Child Care Aware of NH is a statewide Child Care Resource and Referral Program powered by Southern New Hampshire Services. The preparation of this email was financed under a Contract with the State of New Hampshire, Department of Health and Human Services, Division for Economic Housing Stability, Bureau of Child Development and Head Start Collaboration with funds provided in part by the State of New Hampshire and the US Department of Health and Human Services.
