  Akron Club Members Stepping Up To Help The Akron Urban League  

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Distribution Project

The Akron Urban League is part of an initiative with all Urban Leagues in the State of Ohio to assist with the distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for those in need in our community.  We have received hand sanitizer and over 7,000 masks to give away. The corporations of Proctor & Gamble and Cleveland Whiskey teamed up with The Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network (MAGNET) and the Greater Cleveland Urban League, to manufacture and provide these needed items to cities across Ohio served by Urban Leagues. All of that is wonderful news and this is where we come in! 

This week, the staff will fill 500+ 12 oz. bottles with hand sanitizer so that we can distribute to households, but we also have gallon containers that will be distributed to minority businesses, churches, non-profit agencies, etc.

Our members will distribute the PPE on Tuesday, July 28th and Saturday August 1st from 11am – 3pm in the AUL parking lot. 

Sanitizer kits will be loaded into car trunks that pull in so that there is “no touch”. 

A flyer will be distributed this week to WFD clients, minority businesses, barber shops, hair salons, day cares, AMHA, Head Start, non profits and churches, inviting them to register and plan to drive through and get their FREE PPE.
