–The Economic Vitality Corporation (EVC) of San Luis Obispo County, in collaboration with First 5 SLO County, the Child Care Planning Council SLO County, and the Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County (CAPSLO), is establishing a COVID-19 relief supply drive that will commence with immediate effect and run through Jan. 27, 2021. This supply drive is intended to and will benefit more than 290 local child care programs, licensed to serve over 6000 children, that are experiencing losses and mounting costs due to the pandemic.

The EVC’s goal for the supply drive is to provide each of our local child care programs, regardless of size, with critical resources they need to effectively and safely run their child care operations during the pandemic.

Top priority items are:

  • disinfectant
  • disinfectant wipes
  • gloves
  • hand soap
  • hand sanitizers
  • toilet paper
  • paper towels
  • glue
  • child-safe paint
  • paper of all types
  • non-contact thermometers
  • cloth masks

 

Donations can be dropped off at one of the community partner locations listed below or you may call Shana Paulson at (805) 440-2082 or email her at spaulson@capslo.org to make arrangements. All donations are tax-deductible and will be distributed to SLO County child care programs through CAPSLO.
