The program provides a 30 day supply of South Fork handsanitizer for each business along with enough masks for each employee of the business for 30 days. Organizers at the distribution site want to remind people to print the receipt they get in their email after registering for the giveaway. It streamlines the process if the person picking up supplies has the receipt.

There are still plenty of supplies. As of Tuesday afternoon only seventy one percent of the products had been reserved. That means well over one hundred businesses could still apply.
