The drive is part of the county's "Dutchess Responds" initiative. The Dutchess County Government assists local childcare providers with emergency supplies through its Central Services Division, but there is still a rising need.
The Child Care Council of Dutchess and Putnam Inc. need adult-sized face masks, disinfecting wipes, paper towels, gloves, bleach and toilet paper.
Drop-off donations, by appointment only, are to be made at the Council's office at 301 Manchester Road in Poughkeepsie. Call (845) 473-4141, ext. 210, to schedule a drop-off. Those who want to donate but u...able to deliver should call the Coronavirus Hotline at (845) 486-3555 or email Senator Serino's office at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a pickup.
