With personal protective equipment in limited supply for healthcare workers and first responders, Lowe’s in Silverthorne has donated over 300 N95 face masks, 600 pairs of rubber gloves, 600 spray bottles, as well as gallons of bleach to supplement local supplies.
“All of us at Lowe's in Silverthorne want to support the local COVID-19 emergency response in any way we can,” store manager Bobbi Meyer said. “We have thoroughly enjoyed being in a position to help, especially because our associates are impacted in Summit and neighboring counties.”
In addition to donating supplies, Lowe's has utilized their delivery trucks to move materials from the Strategic National Stockpile in Steamboat Springs to Grand, Eagle, and Summit counties. Strategic National Stockpiles, often abbreviated, SNS, are supplies, medicines, and devices for providing lifesaving care stored at secure locations all over the country and positioned to deliver critical supplies quickly.
“Community is the foundation of who we are at Breckenridge Distillery,” Breckenridge Distillery Marketing Manager Jessie Unruh said. “Our ability to shift our production efforts into manufacturing hand sanitizer puts us in a unique position to supplement limited local supplies. We want to help keep Summit Sanitized.”
Breckenridge Distillery has filled over 300 large spray bottles of sanitizer for use by emergency operations personnel and is providing personal-sized bottles to the community at its headquarters on Airport Road in Breckenridge. The distillery is constantly adjusting their production process to align with the most current recommendations and regulations for hand sanitizer.
