Critical Moment Survey: Takes less than 60 seconds to respond
The Chamber opened up a survey last week to determine the best initial approaches to re-igniting the south central Kansas economy. If you have not completed this survey, please consider doing so as your input is more critical than ever. Your answers will help in the targeting of investments and resources. Please take the survey as soon as you can since we will be closing it on Thursday, Apr. 23 at noon.
Good Deeds in Hard Times
Working under the name GoProtectUs, a group is producing and distributing fabric face mask covers and other products that can help safeguard healthcare workers and others from contracting the virus. Coalition members include Wichita State University’s makerspace GoCreate , a Koch collaborative, Fruhauf Uniforms , ComfortCare Homes , Groover Labs , Gardner Design , and the charitable giving organization Grumpy Old Men . Creating the face mask covers will require additional volunteers and donations to pay for fabric and supplies. To donate directly to the WSU Foundation, Grumpy Old Men’s matching contribution fund, visit www.foundation.wichita.edu/gocreate.

Completed products will be distributed first to healthcare workers and other first responders in South Central Kansas with the potential to serve other areas of the state and the nation as production capacity allows. Mask cover kits are also available to the general public to be assembled for personal use. For more information or to volunteer, call (316) 978-5307.
