UTICA, N.Y. – As the Mohawk Valley region enters Phase 3 of reopening, Lowe’s in Utica has donated 4,000 KN95 masks for local minority-owned businesses.
“As more businesses begin to reopen and expand capacity, Lowe’s and the city wanted to ensure minority businesses owners had access to adequate masks for themselves and their employees,” said Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri.
Businesses are not required to have Minority and Woman Business Enterprise certification to be eligible to receive masks.
“Masks are critical to helping small businesses and trades get back to work safely as our community opens again. As part of our recently announced $25 million commitment of products and resources to help small businesses to reopen, Lowe's is donating KN95 masks to minority owned small businesses,” said Lowe’s Manager Mike Bick.
