    As businesses and organizations re-open or adjust their continued operations in response to COVID-19, the Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce, Aspirus, Incourage, Wood County Health Department and Legacy Foundation have partnered together to assess the current needs for PPE (personal protective equipment) and preventative items for businesses.

    “Businesses are essential to the local economy, and we are pleased to partner with the other great organizations to assess PPE supplies needed for local businesses in our community,” said Angel Whitehead, Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce President.

    This brief survey will help identify collective PPE needs and potential ways to assist on a local level. The survey is open and applicable to any and all businesses/organizations in the local area. Please submit your information by close of business, Friday, June 10th, if possible.

    The survey can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PKL6R59
