thread on Results of the Alaska PPE Resource Links Survey

November 12, 2020

Thank you to the child care programs that participated in the Alaska Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Resource Links Project survey. The survey collected information on PPE among programs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey’s goal was to help understand the needs for PPE and facilitate connections to resources for addressing needs.

We are glad to share the survey results here.

To support programs, the Alaska PPE Resource Links project is working with Christian Health Associates/Alaska Medical Missions to distribute PPE to programs based upon the survey data prioritizing those with limited budgets. This is funded in part by the Alaska Community Foundation Coronavirus Nonprofit Relief Fund, and State of Alaska – Department of Health and Social Services.

The following information and resources are also available to help child care programs find PPE and supplies.

  • State of Alaska: The State has compiled COVID-19 information and updates here.
  • Compendium of Resources for PPE (Rasmuson Foundation): Vendor listing for PPE supplies as well as free and low cost options from state to national organizations. Click here.
