The Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Lewis County Public Works, Division of Emergency Management has put together a list of urgent need items for our local “First Responders”. “First Responders” include local hospitals, local fire districts, local government facilities, local police, local care clinics and of the like.
All donations will be used within our local community. This is a very urgent ask and we would appreciate anyone who has access to any of the listed supplies, has access to ordering supplies or wants to donate money to please contact the Chamber at 360-748-8885, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . We are using this link: https://www.chamberway.com/first-responders-donations/ to collect monetary donations for these items. The financial donations will then be used to purchase as many of the products as we can.
Keeping our “First Responders” healthy is paramount during this time. We are asking people to consider donating or selling us items that you have an overage of. Check your closets for spare supplies and spread the word, this is a way for you to help people in the medical field stay safe as they serve our community.
