The Sugar Land Legacy Foundation, in conjunction with the city of Sugar Land, is handing out care packages to local businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic in front of Sugar Land City Hall on May 27-29, according to a media release.

The care packages, which are valued at roughly $100, are designed to help small businesses obtain the supplies needed to safely reopen their stores, per the release.


“Promoting service to the community is one of our core values,” SLLF board Chair Sunil Sharma said in the release. “We are honored to support our business community, the basic foundation of our economy, during this economic crisis.”

Each gift contains an assortment of personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies, such as sanitizer, gloves, face masks and thermometers.

SLLF aims to distribute aid to at least 85 different Sugar Land businesses.



Businesses are eligible to apply for a care package if they operate inside the city of Sugar Land and have 50 employees or fewer.

Packages are still available, and items can be picked up at prescheduled times from 9 a.m.-noon May 27-29. To request a care package, visit https://sugarlandlegacy.org/personal-protection-supplies.
