PLEASANT HILL, Calif., June 23, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano and Alameda today announces the upcoming free drive-through PPE distribution to Alameda County facilities on Friday, June 26, 2020.
“We have a dedicated team supporting long-term care residents in the Alameda community,” says Nicole Howell, Executive Director of Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa, Solano and Alameda. “We are so happy to come together with other organizations and community partners to help the hardworking frontline staff care for our seniors.”
This will be the third distribution of gloves, sanitizer, and face masks in the East Bay Area for Ombudsman Services, helping to protect a portion of the 29,000 long-term care residents that it serves.
To reserve supplies, employees of Licensed Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) and Adult Residential Facilities (ARFs) in Alameda County should visit https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfM5HSLgJRfqNsJse-RPsaNeraWpTrDEbZ6udUZG9Ar7ZIUjQ/viewform by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. Facilities will receive an emailed confirmation alerting them to a pickup time and location for Friday morning.
Because this is a contactless pickup, those attending should write the name of their facility on an 8.5 x 11-inch piece of paper and place it on their dashboard.
Friday’s distribution in Alameda County will be held in partnership with Creating New Hope, East Bay Community Energy, EBPPE.Org, as well as with the City of Dublin and the California National Guard.
