The goal is to provide the free kits to the smallest and most vulnerable businesses and nonprofits in Denver. Small gardening and landscape services companies may qualify.

The kit includes hand sanitizer, surface disinfectant, surgical masks, one non-contact thermometer, and 10 face shields. Denver used coronavirus relief funds to make 4,000 kits available, valued at $300 each.

To qualify for the kit, businesses/nonprofits must be located in the City & County of Denver, have 25 or fewer employees, and have been operating prior to March 1, 2020. The registration form and details can be found at Kits will be distributed on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
