The downtown Kalamazoo development organization is specifically looking for “local companies and individuals making and selling personal protective equipment, including masks, gloves and hand sanitizer,” according to a statement.

They’re asking people to email them at [email protected] with information on items and how to purchase them.

The state’s stay-at-home order is currently set to expire May 15. Businesses that reopen will likely be required to provide PPE to their employees.
