Executive Director Update
March 29, 2020
Dear Chapters, 
As concerns about needed supplies continue, I wanted to report that the State Office has secured an initial order for 9,000 face shields. These will be distributed to our most severely impacted Chapters, and an additional order of face shields will be disbursed to meet needs across the state as soon as possible. We have also ordered 100,000 more surgical masks, and will be receiving more than 1,000 boxes of gloves within the week. We plan to discuss distribution in more detail on our call tomorrow. 

If you have emergency supply needs or questions, please reach out to Cyndi Borozny, Deputy Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer, or myself. Thank you for all you are doing to keep our staff and individuals safe and healthy.
