Thanks to a grant provided by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce and the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce invites small businesses in our region to pick up a free personal protective equipment (PPE) toolkit.

The Rome Chamber reports that it has received $10,000 in financial support from Excellus BlueCross BlueShield to support area businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Supplies such as hand sanitizer, cleaning products, wipes, gloves, masks/shields, etc., that are currently stored in the Chamber conference room will soon be assembled into the Hummel’s OP boxes and readied for distribution."

Rome area businesses can bring a copy of their business card to pick up the kits on Wednesday, September 16, from 10am-2pm, at the Chamber office located at 139 W. Dominick St.  Distribution will be made at the front door and those picking up PPE toolkits must wear a mask, use social distancing while in line on the sidewalk, and have their business card in hand.
