Buncombe County Partnership for Children request materials to protect essential staff

News release from Buncombe County Partnership for Children:

During the response to COVID-19, childcare providers plan an essential role in supporting healthcare and emergency workers by caring for their children.

Many childcare centers are struggling to remain open for this purpose alone and they need our help. By being open, child care staff are putting themselves in harm’s way and need additional supplies to keep the children they care for and themselves safe.

Buncombe County Partnership for Children is asking for donations of the following items toΒ distribute to these essential worker child care centers:
