The Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Highlands Cashiers Health Foundation to provide valuable Personal Protection Equipment to small business members in need.

Pickup a supply of reusable masks for your employees at Chamber offices (202 U.S. 64 West) between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Quantities are limited to 10 per business and will be distributed on a first come/first served basis.

The masks are provided as part of a FEMA /United Way effort to deliver more than 5,000 essential face coverings to the area. The masks are 100% cotton and contain silver and copper, which help prevent the growth of viruses and germs. They are washable and reusuable up to 15 times. These are intended for staff only.
