More PPE Resources

Request additional PPE Supplies: After distributing PPE to programs who have previously requested supplies, RIAEYC has access to a limited number of additional touch-less thermometers and surgical paper masks for distribution. Supplies will be prioritized for child care and school-age programs that have not yet received PPE or have recently opened additional classrooms. If you are not sure whether your program has previously received PPE, please contact your program’s leadership.
