Survey: Child Care Programs in Need of PPE Supplies

October 07, 2020

Many of Alaska’s early childhood education programs are in constant need of personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves, and the families that rely on them, against the continued threat of COVID-19. If your program has a current or future need for PPE, we need your feedback!     

thread, Rasmuson Foundation, and the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) College of Health invite early childhood education programs to participate in the Child Care Programs PPE Resource Links Survey.

The survey takes five minutes and helps gauge the need for PPE and supplies associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey is confidential and individual answers will be protected.

Responses will aid local agencies in linking early childhood education programs with PPE resources, including potential distribution of donated PPE supplies and making connections to PPE resources or manufacturers to help meet identified needs. PPE needs are not guaranteed.

Survey Responses are Due: Oct. 16

This survey is funded in part by the Rasmuson Foundation and conducted in collaboration with the UAA’s College of Health (COH) and thread.

If you have any questions on this survey, please email Ukallaysaaq, project consultant and senior fellow.
